  • "Survival of the Penguins"  By: Hallie McRoberts
  • Hey, look! It's a penguin.
  • There goes our penguin friend. Look he's going over to a female penguin. 
  • Hello pretty lady!
  • Like humans bring flowers for their partners, male penguins bring rocks to their partners. Sometimes the males will even fight over the perfect rocks. 
  • Another male penguin is coming to the female and our friend. 
  • So, do you come to Antarctica often?  
  • While they are waddling along, the female will decide which male will be her mate. 
  • Look at how much land I can claim for us. 
  • The male attracts the female by displaying how he can claim his territory.  Another way males attract the female is based on the yellow by their ears. The less yellow the have the more attractive they are to the female. 
  • Look at my ears. They're barely even yellow!
  • So, where were we? Oh, yes. I have amazing ears, don't I?  
  • Penguins have the same mate for the rest of their lives
  • Bye. Thanks for nothing. Have an ice day! Or don't. 
  • Our penguin friend's amazing ears and his way to claim land won him the girl.
