Penguins are aquatic flightless birds living in the southern hemisphere especially in Antartica. They are highly adapted for life in the water, their wings have become flippers! Most penguins eat krill, fish, squid, and other animals underwater. They spend half of their lives in land and half in the oceans. They are not only found in cold climates such as Antartica, in fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. One species, the Galápagos Penguin, lives near the equator.
The Emperor penguin is the largest living species, The adults average about 1.1m tall and weigh 35 kg or more. The smallest species is called the little blue penguin. which is 40 cm tall and weighs 1kg.
