MARS NEEDS… salmon?

Man, I need to learn more biology. Not only did I not know know penguins could fly and live in space, but they also come from Mars!

Penguins in Antarctica

OK, fine. This was actually taken under water in Antarctica, so they’re not flying, they’re swimming, and that’s not Mars and its polar ice cap, it’s an air hole with light trickling through.

That’s why I don’t study biology. Martian space penguins would be a lot cooler.
