So a little lighter subject today! If you’ve read my blog, you’ve noticed that I love penguins! They are so cute and funny to watch as they fly through the water. Yes, they are birds, but they cannot fly except when they are swimming.
There are 17 species of penguins. My favorite it the macaroni penguin. The tallest penguin is the emperor penguin that grows to around 4 feet tall. Another thing I love about them is that they mate for life. They always come back to the same ‘spouse’ that they’ve had. Not all animals do this. The male takes care of the egg on its feet until it hatches while the female goes off to eat and bring back food for the baby. Did you know that birds throw up in the baby’s mouth to feed it? Yuck!
If you ever get a chance to go to a zoo that has penguins, you should! Watch them as they fly, mingle with each other, and do their crazy antics! If you can’t get to a zoo, you can watch the San Diego Zoo live penguin cam and perhaps catch them there!
What is your favorite animal and why?
