Imagine if you will, standing for 60 days in a -35C blizzard with no food or shelter, all the while trying to balance a large yet precious egg on your feet. It is the courageous Emperor penguin who manages to pull off this feat of endurance in order to ensure the safe passage of the next generation. Nature is truly mind-boggling.
