Penguins are completely flightless, equipped with only flippers for swimming, but they can go 20 mph. They spend about half their time in the water, where they catch fish, squid, krill, and shrimp, swallowing them whole. They're able to drink salt water because they have a gland that filters the salt. Many different Penguin species exist in all sizes, and they're playful and social, often nesting together. Also, those in the colder climates will huddle together in large groups to warm themselves. Their distinct tuxedo appearance is more than just looks, serving them well as camouflage.
