It's really just like any singles bar

From the Daily Mail in the UK:
Amazing pictures as 10,000 penguins come to shore to breed

It is one of the most extraordinary sights in nature: more than 10,000 King Penguins standing shoulder to shoulder at St Andrew's bay on the island of South Georgia, preparing to breed.

The 3ft tall creatures — part of a colony of more than 100,000 on the Atlantic island close to Antarctica — create a living landscape of breathtaking scale and colour.

  3. WOW, it makes me a bit claustorphobic as well.

    do they take numbers to see who gets to breed with one another?

  4. Looks like a Friday night in Buckhead, circa 1980.






    (Okay, if you're not from Atlanta, you won't get that.)
