: Noisy Penguins
Mar 31, 2006

The chinstrap penguins make a return today in full force. One thing that is often noted about large penguin colonies is how noisy they can be. Being mostly identical they use voice recognition for identifying their chicks. Of the penguin species, the chinstraps are one of the noisiest. In fact, they are also referred to as Stonecracker penguins due to their piercing voices.

I’m Getting A Penguin!

I hadn’t mentioned anything earlier because I wasn’t sure, but I’ve been approved and my penguin should be here tomorrow. This is going to be the coolest pet ever. I got a humboldt because they do better in warmer weather. I ordered it through Penguin Warehouse. I don’t have a name yet, but I’ll post pictures on Monday. Have a good weekend… I’m going to see Ice Age tonight too! Woohoo!

    Congrats on getting a Penguin. Should be a very awesome pet.

  2. Doug says:

    Holy cow. I can’t believe your actually getting a Penguin. I was just telling some friends how neat it would be to own a penguin. I bet they are pretty expensive…

  3. Kaelendra says:

    Blink, you can have a penguin? it’s legal?

  4. Ryan says:

    So what type of habitat do you have to have in your home? And how much does that cost to maintain and feed? It must be an ENORMOUS amount of money.

  13. Kevin says:

    Noisy penguins reminds me of the good old days of the lunchroom at work when everyone had to shout over everyone else to be heard. I remember actually shouting that they should all shut up because I couldn’t think – they stopped for a few seconds, then continued on.

    Nice April Fools day joke on the Penguinwarehouse.
