Before you learn how to draw a penguin love heart, did you know?
Everyone loves penguins, right? These cute little creatures are so adorable that they get used in all kinds of art… especially around the time of Valentine’s day. I have a list of some penguin facts that you may or may not know.
- They are team players. In the extreme c0ld of Antarctica the penguins use a group hug to stay warm. They take turns going from the center where its warm to the outside giving all the penguins a chance to get warm.
- They come in all shapes and sizes. The tiny fairy penguin can weigh as little as 2 pounds and largest penguin, the emperor penguin, can weigh around 90 pounds!
- Penguins are super divers. The Gentoo penguins can dive 450 times in a single day looking for food and can stay under water for several minutes.
- Females are boss! Some female penguins leave their male partners looking after the eggs for up to two months without even taking a break to eat! They use their stored fat for energy and wait for the females to come back with food.
- Penguins live long lives. Some penguin species can live from 15-20 years! During this lifetime, they can spend up to 75% of their time in the water.
- Penguins are very romantic! Although not all penguin species are monogamous, there are certain penguins that will look for their perfect match and stay together for life!
- Penguins get sunburnt! Penguins don’t all live on the ice and for those that don’t, they need to keep away from the sun during the midday hours because they can get just as red as you or me.
- Penguins aren’t able to fly. Evolution has reduced the wings of these birds to be more the size of nifty little fins that are more useful for swimming and catching their favorite food… little fishies!
- They have a good radar. King penguins can find their young in a group of 50,000 just by hearing the unique sound of their voice.
