We discuss a trajectory of penguins' faeces after the powerful shooting due to their strong rectal pressure. Practically, it is important to see how far faeceses reach when penguins expel them from higher places. Such information is useful for keepers to avoid the direct hitting of faeceses. We estimate the upper bound for the maximum flight distance by solving the Newton's equation of motion. Our results indicate that the safety zone should be 1.34 meters away from a penguin trying to poop in…
