  • Habitat 
  • Food 
  • Hatching
  • Penguins are mostly found in the Southern hemisphere, that is the part of the world that lies south of the equator.  Some species can be found on the coasts of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, and Peru, and even on the Galapagos Island at the equator.
  • Penguins wardrobe
  • penguins get all their food from the ocean but not all penguins eat the same food.  Macaroni penguins eat mostly squid and shrimp.  The Peruvian Penguins prefer small fish, such as anchovies.  penguins are bigger eaters.  Most Penguins eat fish, while others enjoy large quantities of tiny fish, shrimp-like creatures called krill. 
  • Swimming 
  • Penguins chicks may take up to three days to break out of their shell completely. When they finally pop through, they are moist from the egg sack.  They drop quickly into fluffy, downy balls, usually brown in color. When the baby chick is born, its naked body helps it to get the most heat from the parents body while it stays struggled under tue build shelter
  • Building a nest
  • Each year, a penguin's feathers wear out and they must be replaced.  New feathers under the skin begin to push through the old feathers.  The old feathers fall out when the new ones have come in.  This is called molting.  Will this is going on they could lose to half their body weight.  Without there thick, protective coat to keep it warm and dry, it could not survive in the icy water so they stay on land.
  •  While they can’t fly through the air with their flippers, many penguin species take to the air when they leap from the water onto the ice. Just before taking flight, they release air bubbles from their feathers. This cuts the drag on their bodies, allowing them to double or triple their swimming speed quickly and launch into the air. 
  • Penguihns often nest ion open areas where there are not a lot of material to use, so they have to make do with whats handy.  A nest may be made out of small pebbles.  A pebble nest helps to keep the eggs off the cold ground and prevents them from getting wet if the snow melts quickly or there is a sudden rainstorm.
