Although most people seem to associate penguins with the cold Antarctic regions, in fact penguins can be found around the coasts of most islands in the Southern Ocean.

Like most birds, penguins have little or no sense of smell (a boon for those in a crowded penguin rookery!)

Penguin calls (vocalizations) are individually identifiable, allowing partners to recognize each other and also their chick.

Penguins exhibit intricate courting and mate-recognition behavior. Elaborate visual and vocal displays help establish and maintain nesting territories.

In addition to blubber for insulating warmth, penguins have stiff, tightly packed feathers (up to 70 per sq. in.) that overlap to provide waterproofing.

The penguin body is fusiform and streamlined, adapted for swimming. A penguin has a large head, short neck, and elongated body.

Penguins may swim and feed in groups, but some may be solitary when diving for food.

The legs and webbed feet are set far back on the body, which causes penguins to stand upright when on land.

Penguins are designed for life in the sea. Some species spend as much as 75% of their lives in the water. They lay their eggs and to raise their chicks on land.

Penguins eat krill, squids, and fishes. Various species of penguins have slightly different food preferences, which reduces competition among species.

The average lifespan of penguins is probably 15 to 20 years. Some individuals live considerably longer.

Most northerly penguins are found on the Galapagos Islands which straddle the equator.

Penguins are considered to be the most social of birds. Rookeries may contain thousands of individuals.

Penguins communicate by vocalizing and performing physical behaviors called "displays."

Penguins generally live on islands and remote continental regions that are free of land predators, where their inability to fly is not detrimental to their survival.
