That's a Great line-up Rolan!...You know there is a wonderfully moving and well documented film made about the Emperor Penguins in the wild, called 'March Of The Penguins', narrated by Morgan depicts their life cycle of survival in the extreme cold of the polar regions. These creature survive -75% temperatures without eating for four months. Unbelievably inspiring!
