现在正值冬季,对于生活在日本北海道旭山动物园内的国王企鹅来说,这正是它们身体最容易发福的时期。而动物园里的饲养人员正忙着给它们减肥,方法是加大企鹅们的运动量。



据美联社12月15日报道,该动物园发言人山崎哲夫介绍说,他们每天都让这些企鹅在雪地里走上两次,而每次的行走距离为500码。他说:“与人类一样,企鹅在冬季也会给自己的体内堆积大量脂肪,同时,它们的血糖水平也会相应提高。”


其实,该动物园内的15只国王企鹅现在还都不能算是大胖子。该动物园的一位官员介绍说,企鹅在冬季时的正常体重范围应该是33磅到40磅不等,而这群企鹅中,只有一只的体重达到40磅。山崎哲夫表示:“为抵御严寒天气,企鹅在冬天里总是习惯于静静地站在那里一动不动。”山崎哲夫说,到了夏天,它们则经常四处走动和下水游泳。


为避免这群企鹅真的变得大腹便便,该动物园从2003年起开始对它们执行冬季运动减肥计划。动物园方面拟从今年12月到明年4月让这些企鹅每天坚持散步两次。

It"s wintertime and the king penguins at a zoo in northern Japan are putting on weight. But the keepers there have a solution: exercise.


Authorities at Asahiyama Zoo are taking the penguins on 500-yard walks on the snowy grounds twice a day, said zoo spokesman Tetsuo Yamazaki.


"Just like in humans ... the fat accumulates during the winter months, and the blood-sugar level rises," Yamazaki explained from the zoo, 570 miles northwest of Tokyo.


The zoo"s 15 king penguins aren"t exactly obese. Penguin winter weight varies from 33pounds to 40 pounds, said zoo official Kazunobu Maru. So far, only one of the flock is 40 pounds, he said.


The reason for weight gain is natural, zoo officials say.


"In order to withstand the cold, the penguins have a habit of standing very still during winter months," Yamazaki said, while in the summer they can walk around and swim as much as they want.


To fend off obesity, the zoo instituted the winter exercise program in 2003.


The penguins have tender webbed feet and can only walk significant distances on snow, so the program can only take place during the colder months.


The zoo, on the northern island of Hokkaido, takes the penguins on strolls from December until April. The first walk of the season was Thursday. (实习编辑:夏根建)
