What penguins look like
 Black back and white front
 Long, sharp beak
 Tiny black eyes with white all around it
 small animals
 Two wings, but can’t fly
 Very short tail
 No ears but can hear
 No strong bones
 Small beak
 There are 18 types of penguin species
 Emperor penguins are the biggest of them all
Penguins Lifespan
(How long it lives)!!!!!!
 Penguins live until they have no food left to
 Or they suffer from pollution and get sick
and die from different kinds of chemicals
Habitat and Climate
 All penguins live south of the equator
 Also a rookery can include thousands of penguins
 One of the coldest placecs on earth is…Antarctica
 Emperor penguins enjoy their life on the ice.
What Penguins Eat
 Penguin’s love to eat fish,squid,and
 Their a little carnivore
 They get their food by diving deep
into the ocean
 In the water their predator’s are killer whales and leopard
seal’s (their greatest threat)
 On land their predator’s are large birds
How Penguins Behave
 When they travel far they use their tummies and wings
to save energy and propel like a sled
Penguin Babies
 Baby penguins will maybe take up to 3 days to brake
out of their shell/egg
 It may take 10-45 days to walk after they hatch
Physical Adaptations
 Penguins have feathers that keep them warm in cold
 Their black and white feathers work like camouflage in
the water to predators… here’s how it works
 When predators are looking from below or from above
they use their feather’s to blend in with the water
 But on land it’s hard for that to work
Behavioral Adaptations
 When a penguin get’s too hot it fluffs up it’s feathers to
cool off
 dad Penguins keep their egg’s warm by sitting on
them while the mother goes fishing
 Because their so cold penguins huddle together to
create heat and keep warm
Physiological Adaptations
 Penguins can swim underwater for 25 miunits and 40
3km per hr
 Penguins have a stream lined body with webbed feet in
the water their webbed feet help them swim like a speed
 Penguins all use their short stiff tail wings to act like a
propeller and help them swim
Fun fact’s
 All penguins use their beak to peck at stuff sometimes for
work sometimes for fun
 But some penguin species(bare patches create
windows)around their eyes to help them see better
 Most birds have hollow bones but penguins don’t so they
can’t fly but they can waddle
