Did you know that penguins are especially talented when it comes to shooting the sh#%? Well, shooting THEIR sh#%, anyway!
Check this out from livescience.com:
Penguins can shoot their poop across great distances, up to about twice their body lengths, and scientists calculated exactly how much force they require to do so. The team specifically looked at Humboldt penguins (Spheniscus humboldti), which spew their feces in a graceful arc from their nests on high ground. They calculated that the pressure generated in the penguins’ rectums was as much roughly 4 pounds per square inch (28.2 kilopascals). That means the powerful poopers can fling their feces at about 5 mph (8 km/h) and up to roughly 53 inches (134 centimeters) away.
So, we may not have penguins in the wild of Montana, but this post is technically about shooting, so we thought it was worthy to share here. Now you know!
