Are penguins more evolved than humans

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Question 1) Are penguins more evolved than humans ? Yes I do believe that penguins are more evolved than humans because of several reason after watching 'March of the penguins', firstly is that penguins travel long distances to reach their mating spot, and they know exactly where the best place is to mate and take care of their eggs. They choose the spot where the ice is thickest so that it won't break, and every mating season they come back to the exact same spot, this is usually after around 2-3 years. ...read more.

Through this time there are many snow storms and the temperature is below -20 degree Celsius. Here we see that penguins are use to cold conditions because of their fur.

This is a temporary thing so that the child does not die of hunger. Again we can see here that penguins are more evolved than humans. By this time when the egg hatches the males have gone over 6 month without food. ...read more.

Conclusion

So we see here that the mother is able to keep the food in their mouth for several weeks until returning to the child. Now when the mother returns the father must leave so that he can go eat, but before he leaves he hears his child voice so that he will be able to recognise him when he comes back after a couple of months. This is truly amazing as the father penguin is able to remember that voice for so long and be able to recognise the voice from hundreds of child after a couple of month. So here is another factor that tells us that penguins are more evolved than humans. Therefore after reading this we can say that penguins are more evolved than humans. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
