誰是路痴?
麥哲倫企鵝長途遷徙,母的比公的容易迷路

英文新聞
In South America, Magellanic penguins breed in Patagonia in February then go north to Brazil to look for food. Sometimes they get lost on the way. By tracking penguins, researchers found out that 75% of the penguins that get lost in South America are female. Females travel farther north, perhaps because they prefer warmer water than male penguins.

在南美洲,麥哲倫企鵝每年2 月在巴塔哥尼亞繁殖後,往北遷徙到巴西覓食。牠們有時會在遷徙途中迷路。科學家追蹤發現,南美洲迷路的企鵝中,有75% 是母企鵝。這是因為母企鵝往北遷徙至較遠的地帶。母企鵝為何遷徙較遠?科學家認為可能跟母企鵝比公企鵝偏愛溫暖水域有關。
