Scientists managed to find a cemetery for “Adelie” penguins, in addition to a large number of mummies covered with feathers.
According to the scientists, the high temperatures led to the melting of a large layer of ice, which led to the emergence of this tomb, which was previously impossible to view.
Scientists were able to find the tomb with the help of satellite images in the Cape Erezar region, located in the Ross Sea. The scientists noted that over the past 30 years, part of the sea ice sheet has disappeared due to high temperatures.
The scientists, led by Stephen Emily, added that they would be able to find interesting discoveries there, according to the site “One”.
Among these distinguished discoveries were the mummies of penguins that lived in this region of Antarctica five thousand years ago, which contained the remains of penguin chicks, and the bodies of birds that died 800 years ago, and thanks to the ice, they preserved their feathers.
