Penguins have sex with dead females and ‘children’
DURING Robert Falcon Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition 1910-1913, aka the Terra Nova expedition, team surgeon George Murray Levick studied the Adélie penguin at Cape Adare that he observed young male Adélie penguins having sex with dead female penguins. He also noted male penguins having sex with other males, gang-bangs, and sometimes birds murdering and sexually molesting chicks.
Yep, pervy paedo penguins are among us.
Levick was judemental, noting in Greek the “astonishing depravity” of “hooligan males”. The Guardian suck up the press release, saying Levick “wrote it in Greek so that only an educated gentleman would understand the horrors he had witnessed.”
Levick wrote a paper called Natural History of the Adelie Penguin, but he saved the best bits for the more select paper called Sexual Habits of the Adelie Penguin, which the paper says “was privately circulated among a handful of experts.”
Experts? Or a “ring” as tabloids would nowadays term them.
Anyhow, if you need to p-p-p-pick up a penguin, play dead and wait….
