Even if they are starving, natives living in the Arctic will never eat a penguin's egg. Why not?

maybe the penguins are not native to the artic, but if offered a penguin egg a straving person would eat it no matter where it came from. There for the question and answer you asked are both incorrect

I think the answer needs more explanation, good thought, though.

A better way to pose the question would be "Even if they are starving, polar bears will never hunt for penguins. Why not?" - 'Coz they are indigenous to opposite poles.'

Fun(ish), but too easy.
I agree with what others have said, though...is Arctic natives (is there such a thing?) were handed a penguin's egg, they would eat it if starving.

At first, i thought "because penguins don't lay eggs"...but then i realized that of course they do

I guess knowing penguins are in antarctica is all part of being a penguin enthusiast... nice teaser!

I have heard it like this: How many penguins can a polar bear eat in one week. The answer is none because they live on oppisite poles. I would never eat a penguin egg, penguins are sso cute. And I'm not even a vegetarian.



Okay, I lied, I am a vegetarian BUT STILL!!!

Please excuse my horrific spelling errors.

Not all penguins, only emperor penguins live in Antarctica. For example, Galapagos penguins, of course, live on the Galapagos Islands.

P.S. I'm a vegetarian, too!

i agree with the other s it was easy to think of but didnt make that much sense. I mmean if i was forced to, starving and hadnt eatten for days, of corse i would eat a penguin egg, but if I had the choice, i would rather avoid it.
