Dentro del Planet Penguin respetamos los ciclos solares de la Antártida. Es por ello que el corto verano austral ocurre en enero, donde hay luz prácticamente las 24 horas del día, proseguido por un larguísimo invierno donde la Antártida se ve sumergida en una prolongada penumbra.


Ayer recibimos un divertido poema, regalo de Josie Whitehead, que hoy queremos compartir con todos vosotros. Si el inglés es un problema, Google Translate puede ser la solución.


There are families of penguins who live in a “fridge”
And perhaps you’ll be wondering why.
Their ice-world’s a place that all penguins like,
And these penguins for certain aren’t shy.

The temperature’s just as a penguin would like,
And they’ve a freezing cold pool where they swim.
There was only one problem, the penguins all said,
Without sunshine our world is too dim.

So they gave them bright lights and lots of blue sky,
And a beach where they look out to sea.
They added some rocks for their cold rocky shore –
And they’ve plenty of humans to see.

Quite often the penguins enjoy a snowstorm,
As they love the snowflakes on their skin.
And what do they need in addition to this
To prevent them from all getting thin?

They’re supplied every day with tasty fish-meals,
And they’re never pursued by a shark –
And these families of penguins lead lives full of ease
In their Ice World within Loro Parque.
