Luisa's information report about penguins

Penguins are a member of the bird family

Penguins have two feet and wings. Some penguins have yellow chests and orange beaks and small penguins have hairy eyebrows. Other small penguins are fluffy and cute.

Penguins live on small islands and live near the sea and ocean so they can hunt for food. They also live in Antarctica, New Zealand, Peru and Argentina. Most penguins live in cold places.

Penguins are very strong swimmers and are good at hunting fish. Penguins sometimes slide on their tummies so they can move around faster and don’t need to waddle around. Penguins can stay underwater for up to 18 minutes.

Penguins are carnivores, so they eat fish like Silverfish, lanternfish and Mullets. They also eat  Crustaceans, krill, squid and octopuses.

Lots of birds can not live in cold and icy places but penguins can. They have found a way to survive the freezing conditions.
