In the beginning of March, the great emperor penguin makes its 70 mile journey to its breeding grounds in Antarctica; however, in September, it only has to go a couple of miles to get back to the water.

How is this possible?


Answer

In March, it is the start of fall, and the water is frozen solid for long distances. In September, the temperature starts to warm up, and the ice melts very quickly. So, their journey is shortened considerably.
