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


Penguins are native to Antarctica.

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 would never eat a penguin egg even if i was starving. i would rather die than eat a penguin's egg. i love penguin's very very.... much.

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, 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 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.

LOL I sound like one of those old, wise, British guys like Dumbledore except for nobody is as awesome as Dumbledore. Woo-Hoo.

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.
