Studies conducted by both natural historians and scientists alike have often revealed fascinating and often peculiar aspects of wildlife behaviour. From the original ill-fated Captain Scott polar expedition, Dr George Murray Levick arrived at Ridley Beach, Cape Adare, Victoria Land (the north westernmost point of the Ross Sea in Antarctica), on 13 February 1911. Dr Levick and his team remained to study the area for eleven months through both the following winter and summer, until they were retrieved by Terra Nova on 3 January 1912. After another ten-day sledging trip from 4–14 October 1911, Dr Levick spent much of their departure in the midst of the Adélie penguin colony, now known to be the largest in the world for this species, taking photographs as well as detailed notes. His findings and subsequent recording provide naturalist with startling insights into the lives of one particular species of penguin, most notably their less than conventional sexual habits and social structure.
