Journey To Antarctica

By Alana

Hi and welcome to my flyer about Antarctica

To get you started, I thought I'd share a joke.


How cold is it in Antarctica?


It's so cold you have to climb into the freezer with the ice-cream to get warm.......




FACTS ABOUT SEALS

Did you know that male elephant seals are the biggest of Antarctica's seals?

A male seal can weigh up to 4 tonnes. That's as heavy as about 47 men.


Fur seals don't have thick layers of fat like other seals. Instead, a thick fur coat helps keep them warm. Antarctica's seals spend most of their life in the ocean.



SNOW PETREL

Did you know the snow petrel is known to nest in the Rocky Mountains of Antarctica?


THE WANDERING ALBATROSS

Did you know the Wandering Albatross has the longest wing span? The wing span measures 3 metres.


Polar bears are know to be very big in Antarctica.

CAPTAIN ROBERT SCOTT



CAPTAIN ROBERT SCOTT

Penguins

The female emperor penguin lays a single egg on the ice. The males roll it onto their feet and under a skin fold. There are all different kinds of Penguins.


ADELIE PENGUINS

Adelie penguins are the smallest of the Antarctica Penguins. Adelie penguins build their nest of stones on the rocky beaches of Antarctica. There are over 2.5 million breeding pairs living in Antarctica.
