Mummified Penguins Under the Antarctic Ice
Some of the corpses looked newly dead but have actually been preserved in ice for more than 800 years. https://t.co/Slot4q0qOU

Health Editor’s Note: Melting Antarctic ice exposed mummified bodies of Adelie penguins which appear to be at least 800 years old and some are 5,000 years old according to radiocarbon analysis. Maybe with the weather changing, more Adelie penguins will again begin to use the site as it has become available to them….good for penguins looking for a place with lots of pebbles, but not a good sign for the future of the earth…..Carol
