Range of penguins mapped

Penguins are marine birds that inhabit most utmost only in the Southern Hemisphere. Only the Galapagos penguin lives north of the equator. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other sea organisms. Despite that, they incredibly adapted for living in the seawater. They spend approximately half of their lives on the beach and the other half in the sea.

The map below displays where penguins are inhabited in the earth.

The largest penguin species is the emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) on medium; adults are approximately 1.1 meters (3 feet 7 inches) tall and weigh 35 kilograms (77 pounds). The smallest penguin species is the blue penguin (Eudyptula minor), which reaches only 33 centimetres (13 inches) tall and weighs 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds).

The map below presents the geographical spread of different penguin species.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
