Penguins are excellent swimmers, to the point that they can swim forty kilometers per hour. Their wings are long and narrow, but they are efficient and powerful in their movement.
They have webbed legs which, although they do not contribute much to swimming, do serve as rudders. Another outstanding ability of the penguins has to do with their migration.
Although when they walk on land, penguins look very clumsy. They behave entirely differently in the water. A giant penguin can jump out of the water almost two meters into the air and bend gracefully over the surface in an arc.
Penguins live in cold areas, specifically in the open sea of the Southern Hemisphere. Most species live between 45 and 60° South latitude; they are found in higher numbers in Antarctica and nearby islands, followed closely by Argentine Patagonia.
Eating habits vary from species to species. Thus those belonging to the genera Aptenodytes, Megadyptes, Eudyptula, and Spheniscus eat especially fish, and those of the families Pygoscelis and Eudyptes feed on plankton.
Penguins do not need to consume freshwater because they have a gland that allows them to eliminate excess salt when they ingest seawater.
