A fight breaks out when a husband comes home and finds his wife with another penguin.
“Every September, 200,000 penguins come here to fix up their nests and breed. Life here is good, but this husband has come home to find his ‘wife’ with another penguin,” the narrator explains.
“He flips out; his strategy is simple, batter the homewrecker until he flees. Most birds have hollow bones in their wings to make them lighter for flight, but penguins don’t fly, their wings contain solid bone. They use them like baseball bats to club each other, delivering up to eight blows per second. Thick blubber helps protect vital organs from the pummelling.”
