‘Sexual depravity’ of penguins that Antarctic scientist dared not reveal

• Rawstory
It was the sight of a young male Adelie penguin attempting to have sex with a dead female that particularly unnerved George Murray Levick, a scientist with the 1910-13 Scott Antarctic Expedition. No such observation had ever been recorded before, as far as he knew, and Levick, a typical Edwardian Englishman, was horrified. Blizzards and freezing cold were one thing. Penguin perversion was another.

Do penguins really have a cold heart? Maybe they just have cold "hands" and everything else, and they can't tell the difference between warm and cold.
