I wonder if a snake has ever eaten a penguin. my guess is probably not.

@gavin They have penguins in Africa. Clame for the (terrifyingly fast) mamba that lives in the same area as the penguins do. Put the two together and I bet snakes have munched on penguins before.

So cute, but I believe the juvenile penguin is actually grey and fuzzy, not much like men's formal wear at all.

W'rino sophism is on the rise.

@Gavin, if it ever has happened, I bet it went down very smoothly due to the penguin's shape and slickness.
