Shhh! Be Vewy, Vewy Quiet
I'm twacking penguins. Blue Crab Boulevard, a regular read even if I don't steal posting ideas therefrom too often, takes note of the British researchers who are using "satellites to discover the whereabouts of Antarctica’s emperor penguins. By tracking their poop stains."
No shite. OK, actually lots and lots of shite. But it did leave me wondering, considering how much of the "March of the Pengies" is done by sliding along on their bellies, could the researchers track them by their skidmarks instead? I mean, those slides could mark the white under where the penguins are moving. Doncha think?
