1: Thanks to Jessie from the Denver Zoo
2: Penguins Appearance
3: The penguin has a feather coat that keeps them warm. Also have another coat so they don't get wet in the water. The Emperor penguin uses his feathers to camouflage from predators. The colors are Black,Yellow,and white. They also have the wept feet so the could steer in the water.
4: Penguin Family Structure
5: Penguins lay their egg in a colony. A colony can have up to 200,000 penguins. Also a male and a female make nests on little holes,under large rocks,or bushes. The egg takes about 30 days to hatch. The mom partly digests her food so the baby can eat better.
6: Penguin Food and Water
7: Penguins eat crab,krill, shrimp,fish,and small squid. The penguin doesn't chew it's food it swallows it whole. They can go up to 620 miles in search for food. Also a large penguin can catch 30 fish in one dive. So there pointed beaks help them catch food.
8: Penguin Daily Behavior
9: One way the penguin travels is by water. They could even travel thousands of miles to give birth back at where they were born. They have to watch out for seals, sea lions, whales, and orcas. Also there's a sea bird called the giant petrel that steals the penguins eggs. They all swim together to protect their colony.
10: Penguin Habitat
11: One other interesting they live in south hemisphere,New Zealand,South America. Some live near waters of Antarctica. It gets as cold as negative one hundred degrees.Some live in rocky places and some in sandy beaches. The Emperor Penguin lives in Antarctica.
12: Penguin Interesting Facts
13: Some interesting facts about penguins are, their feather color depends on were they live. A Emperor Penguin is the tallest penguin. Also a Faerie penguin is the smallest ,it is as tall as 16 inches. When a baby is born it Knows how to swim. A father may snuggle with other fathers to stay warm.
14: Does the Zoo Enclosure meet the needs of your animal?
15: I think that the enclosure dose meet the needs. I think this because the penguins can't get out. Also there was water so the penguins can swim. Another thing there is is a lot of places that they can explore. Finally, I liked that behind the rocky place is were the penguins go to rest and get warm.
