Exercise Regimen

You know during the winter months you tend to pack on a few extra pounds here and there. There are numerous ways to combat this. There's yoga, running, StepMasters, and all sorts of things for humans to do in order to lose those pounds and inches. But what about penguins? All they want to do is stay still because in their natural habitat it's too cold for them to make the effort to move.

Those penguins in their natural habitat can be forgiven. But what about the ones in zoos? They just want to stand around in the winter months and seeing how they are feed daily, they tend to get a little rotund. The Asahiyama Zoo in Hokkaido Japan has a solution. The poor penguins are twice daily forced to march for 30 minutes.

Reminds of my daily routine.
Oh life is sooo difficult sometimes.
Especially when you love your tucker (food).

No Seawitch, she does not.
But I am waiting for her to tell me to stop.
Well I am still waiting.
