Other birds may have wings, but penguins have been equipped with flippers. This makes them very adept to swimming in water. It also means that they are one of the 40 species of known flightless birds. Every known species of penguin, with the exception of the Galapagos Penguin, lives naturally in the wild in the Southern Hemisphere.

Out of the 17 known species of penguins, 13 of them are considered to be endangered, threatened, or on the verge of extinction.

Interesting Facts About Penguins

#1. Penguins are unlike many other birds in the fact that they are not dimorphic. This means that the male penguins and the female penguins generally look exactly alike.

#2. Rocks are one of the primary things that penguins love to collect. Pebbles are used to make nests. They’ll also swallow small rocks to help digest the foods that they eat. Some researchers even think that penguins can dive deeper because of the added weight of the rocks in their stomachs.

#3. Penguins may not be equipped with teeth, but they do have small spines that are affixed to the inside top of their beak. This helps them to grab onto the foods they want to eat and prevent it from getting away. Many penguins even have these spines on their tongue so they can get an extra firm grip.

#4. A penguin is technically a carnivore, but it would be more accurate to call it a “piscivorous.” This means that its diet consists only of fish. They’ll also eat other sea life, such as shrimp and small crab. One penguin can catch up to 30 fish in a single dive when it is feeling particularly hungry.

#5. The Emperor Penguin has the coldest nesting grounds of any other known bird on the planet today. Temperatures in Antarctica where they nest can reach as low as -40F and wind speeds often hover around 90mph. To counter this cold, Emperor Penguins will put on more body weight in blubber to protect themselves, making them one of the heaviest birds on the planet as well. A male Emperor Penguin may lose up to 30 pounds while caring for a newborn chick.

#6. The feathers of the penguin make it move very fast through the water. This is because air gets trapped between the feathers and this air gets released as they swim, giving them an extra propellant through the water. Penguins will generally swim at a pace of around 6 miles per hour, but can triple that speed in short bursts. In comparison, they can barely walk 1 kilometer per hour when they are on the ground.
