All Things Animal: Penguin Edition- Part I

Hello loves,

Jesus Chick, this one's for you! :)

Okay, so I am now so knowledgeable on penguins, that I would have no problem writing an essay on them. But that might get a little long, so I just decided to divide it into two parts.

Interesting Penguin Facts:

*Penguins swallow their food as a whole. And they never choke?

*They bite fiercely to defend themselves  and their nest. Never underestimate a penguin

*When mothers lose a chick, they steal another mother's chick. Mean, right?

*The name is derived from Welsh terms 'peri', meaning head and "gwyn" meaning white.

* They mate for life. Awwww!

* Penguin chicks have fluffy feathers called down. It's so fluffy!!

*A group of penguins is called colonies or rookery.

Picture time!!

I love penguins!

  3. That fact about mother penguins stealing other mom's eggs is so sad. But those cute pictures cheered me right up!
