Penguin poo is visible from space

From Site:

Scientist trying to locate colonies of emperor penguins in Antarctica have found an unusual way to do it ... looking for their poo from space.

Researchers have had problems working out exactly where the penguins live because individually they are not big enough to show up on satellite images.

But the British Antarctic Survey have found that while the flightless birds are too small to be seen, the mess they leave on the ice isn't.

Scientists have now discovered 10 new colonies of penguins all because of the reddish-brown streaks on the ice ... they never mentioned that in March of the Penguins.
