July 7, 2005: CulturePulp feeds endangered Humboldt penguins at the Oregon Zoo.

Endnotes and Digressions:

Grey-tones for this installment by Chad Essley.

2. Would you like to know more about the "Penguinarium"? Visit the Oregon Zoo's Web site at

3. This comic has online bonus features! I actually conducted a longish interview with Senior Penguin Keeper Shawn St. Michael. Basically, I asked every stupid question that a person ignorant of penguins or zookeeping (i.e., me) might ask, and Shawn offered gloriously detailed, funny and well-spoken answers.

Want to learn a lot more about how Mochica decided to hang with humans? Want to learn about the growing science of helping these animals thrive in captivity? Want to learn how a penguin -- a surprisingly nasty-tempered bird -- can royally mess you up? You can find these answers (and see photos of Mochica) right here.

Type too small? You can download a high-rez PDF of CulturePulp 033 right here: CulturePulp33.pdf
