Penguin Power

January 20, 2016

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a great day. If you’ve looked at twitter recently, you’d see that #penguinawarenessday is trending. And that’s because today is Penguin Awareness Day! Penguins are such amazing animals, and in honor of their special day, we’d like to tell you some fun penguin facts (so you can impress everyone)!

  • Penguins are birds, but they don’t fly.
  • Penguins spend time 50% of their time in the water and the other 50% on land.
  • Penguins eat fish (or other creatures) that they catch in the water.
  • There are 17 different species of penguins.
  • Penguins swallow a lot of seawater.
  • Penguins have excellent hearing…even though you can’t see their ears!

What are your favorite penguin facts? Be sure to let us know! And don’t forget…have a penguin-filled day!
