"Penguins aren't FOOD!"

We were watching the March of the Penguins last night - My mom recommended the movie as totally unobjectionable. So, I wasn't quite prepared for the number of questions (of a serious nature) I was hit with while watching the movie. I had to answer "why did he die, Mommy? (referring to a few different penguins). But the stumper happened in a scene where a seal grabs a penguin in his mouth. My son asked "why did the seal bite the penguin?" I answered that penguins are one of the things that seals eat. To which my 3 1/2 year old adamantly stated "penguins aren't FOOD!"

Boy do I have a lot of explaining to do about "food"!
