45: Leopard Seal: Special Delivery
Aug 26, 2005

Well, there’s some Emperor Penguins for you. They are the largest of the penguins, you’ll notice they are considerably bigger than an Adelie like Osborne, not that the comic is totally to scale with anything. We’ll talk about them more in the future. I guess if you really want to learn a bunch about them you should check out the film “March of the Penguins” still playing in theaters, I have yet to see this, I have just been so busy but I’ve heard it is very good. They are basically the other exclusive penguin inhabitants of Antarctica along with the smaller Adelies. Gentoo and Chinstrap penguins also show up in Antarctica, but their colonies are only on the tip of the peninsula or subantarctic islands. All the other penguin species tend to be further north where it is a bit warmer on subantarctic islands as well as the southern coasts of South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Emperor Penguins have a tough enough life without having to deal with Leopard Seals…
