Humans, we've been learning, sometimes have difficulty remembering their vows, especially when one of them is on a tour of duty. But penguins are naturally faithful to each other. And one particular pair of Magellanic penguins turns out to be among the

Troubled marriages need only to begin to look at the penguin and the albatross. What they have to endure and still stay together is worth looking at.

Some humans?query if animals have feelings -animals can show more feelings and love to their babies and families than some- humans.

I've always believed that the only way to have a truly happy marriage is if the individuals have a significant amount of time I know it's true.

Animals are amazing and much smart than we give them credit for. I'm all for more animals in this world and fewer, a lot fewer humans. All animals feel joy and pain, and all want to live, just like you and I. It breaks my heart to see people split up cat and dog families, and sell or give the babies away. These animals all have connections to their families. How would you like it if your babies were given away?

Penguins, Albatross, Peacocks and Swans could teach mankind a few lessons in loyalty and love yes?

Thank you, Cher. The penguins' and albatros' stories are beautiful. Human beings who leave their spouse so easily should follow their example.

Penguins are almost everywhere. Of course, each group of penguins need to adapt to their climate in their habitat. When I first realized that some penguins live in warmer climate, I was surprised. I had only remembered seeing penguins in snow... If I am not mistaken, just recently I heard that there are penguins in Africa, but I don't remember which specific part of Africa. Interesting!
