Let’s face it, Penguins are cool. These flightless birds waddle and bounce their way through life and are always a favorite a zoos, on television or on the big screen. However, they are so much more than what the cartoons portray them as. In this article we are going to explore the wonderful world of the penguin.
There are 17 species of penguin and not all of them live in the colder climates. They can be found on the Southern hemisphere (SouthPole, and Antarctica), while others prefer the warmer temperatures of South America, Africa, Galapagos Islands, New Zealand and Australia.
These funny black and white birds may not be able to take flight on land, but underwater they are torpedo-shaped dynamos. In fact, the penguin can reach speeds up to 15 miles-per-hour (24 kilometers-per-hour) just by flapping their flippers. The penguin is less clumsy in the water and will spend around 75 percent of its time hunting there.
