Quest For the Beak: Part V

“Mmm, Gelflings!”

Well, we finally get to see the Giant Petrel King. Giant petrels are known as the vultures of Antarctica. Aside from the Wandering Albatross they are about the largest of the scavenger birds there and able to dominate in the feasting of carcasses. They’re carrion feeding ways earned them the name “Stinker” from whalers. They are also not strangers to feeding on singled out penguin chicks or even sick or weak penguins.

I forgot to mention snow petrels the other day, when Howie showed up in the comic. They are definitely much prettier and smaller than their vulture-like cousins. They feed mostly on fish and krill but will feed on carrion as well. They are also pretty much exclusive to Antarctica being one of the only bird species that breed exclusively on the continent (along with emperor penguins and South Polar skuas). They usually nest in rock cliffs near the sea. Video footage of them bathing in the snow (rolling around on their backs in it) seems to be popular among Antarctic documentaries and is pretty cute as well.

    I just noticed on Happy Feet two things:
    1-On the night of the party with the southern lights, it is night (that cannot happen because it’s summer then, and it’s dark during the winter) Also, it can’t happen because then it would only be the males, the females would have left to fish in the ocean.
    2-The other skuas were copying the “boss skua” when he was telling Mumble about being abducted by aliens.

  • clubpenguindude

    110th comment yay! as for happy feet, i didn’t like it one bit, i mean it was cute and all but it was all about gross things… but most people think it’s cute and happy.and not about penguins mating.

  • Friendly Penguin

    I’m writing a comic for the Penguin Times on Club Penguin…
    My penguin is Bellyac…
    It’ll be a comic series for the Penguin Times!
    The first comic is FUNNY!
    Should my comic penguin be a) lime green b) pink c) purple or d) orange?
    Do you want to be featured in my comic?
    If you do, just type your penguin name to me somewhere in the comments…
    You’ll be in there sometime (My comic might not be published, but still…)

  • Friendly Penguin

    Good point, Clubpenguindude, it’s almost like a romance… eww. And then the theme goes from “be yourself” to “we must regulate overfishing in Antartica” or something. But it’s a bit funny when Mumble goes sliding down that ice hill- other than that it’s not overly satisfying. And then Mumble’s dad kind of steals Mumble’s mom’s Heartsong… And besides, it’s impossible for penguins to swim all that way north, they wouldn’t like the warm water and then they’d just either be eaten by something or die from the polluted water…

  • Friendly Penguin

    WHOA I just realized… Mumble ended up in Florida or somewhere around there… all the way from ANTARCTICA! That is sooo unrealistic…

  • Friendly Penguin

    …also most tracking tags don’t flash or anything or have long wires and stuff. And…

    I’m too busy pointing out Happy Feet’s imperfections to compliment the comic! I am such a shame to friendly penguins everywhere… 😥

  • Friendly Penguin

    Okay our computer mouse has one of those scroller wheel things in between the buttons, and when i press it down it makes a mouse-following scroller that goes way fast. When i go way fast up and down this website, it looks like the patterns are just going up slower than the comments. It’s really a sight to behold. But it only works with wire mouses that have an ability to press down the scroller.

    it looks like that but better.

  • steve-o

    Hey mitchampion3 the time for me is three ours behind on this site because its the the same type of time that club penguin uses you see it regulates a certain time which is the same time for every body.
    P.S. friendly, my club penguin name is strant 1314 tell me yours

  • clubpenguindude

    yeah, i’ve noticed that Penguin Standard Time is 3 hours off. My penguin name is Vankakka.

  • clubpenguindude

    I don’t go on club penguin much, even though they have that new search for the map.(the map is at the snow forts, and when i got to the forest i tried nubbing* but it didn’t work)
    *nubbing is when you press f11 to make it full screen and then press the white area under the chat bar. It’s good if you want to hide.

  • Penguin Boy

    Hey guys, i thought of a job i could have. I can buy a penguin mascot costume and entertain at birthday parties. It would be lots of fun, and no one would know who I am inside. What do ya think? And in case I would have to use the bathroom, I could just wear a diaper underneath the costume. That way if i am busy entertaining, I would just pee in my diaper and keep playing with the kids. Diapers WOULD help, don’t you think? I would love to be a penguin and help at parties!

  • Friendly Penguin

    My penguin name is Bellyac, and I will add you two eventually, strant 1314 and Vankakka. I see a plan for a comic already…

  • Friendly Penguin

    Zabsone : ) that’s my latest Neopet she’s soo pretty look up Bellyac_3_3 on neopets if you go on and then see Zabsone if you want to make a female peophin try the name Zaabsonef…
