#AdélieProject Image No. 18 - "Adolescence"
Teenage Adélie penguins do a curious thing when it starts to snow - they try to eat snowflakes as they fall. This adorable behavior might have a more useful purpose than just plain, old fun: it could be practice for nipping krill and fish out of the water. Any such practice will be useful, as it is not long now until they'll find themselves in the water for he first time.
