Facts About Penguins
Since you wanted to see these coloring pages of penguins, I thought I’d share a few facts about penguins. While your students (or your own kids, if you’re homeschooling) are coloring these penguin coloring sheets, it might be fun to talk about penguins.
Penguins are not just creatures that live in the sea or on land, but yes some of them can fly. Penguins live in all types of climates, but they prefer to stay at a temperature between 0°C and -2°C. Penguins have evolved over millions of years and possess adaptations like waterproof feathers to keep them dry even when they swim in water.
Penguins are playful birds that are known for their curiosity. They love playing games and coming up with new ideas on how to play them. Like many other birds, penguins take flight with the help of flippers that act as wings.
How long does a penguin live?
What is the life span of a penguin? A penguin’s average life span is about 20 years. However, they can live up to 30 years or more depending on the species.
Most penguins don’t migrate during the winter seasons, but some do. They may migrate in groups and others go alone depending on their needs and preferences. A group of penguins may have a longer lifespan than an individual one because they are able to feed each other.
These amazing birds are able to survive in harsh conditions with little food, so it’s no wonder that their life spans are so long.
Where do penguins live?
Penguins are found in the Antarctica regions, specifically the Southern Ocean and the Weddell Sea. They try to turn their white feathers into camouflage when they’re in their habitats.
Because of where they live, penguins grow a layer of blubber to keep them warm. In order for them to live as long as possible, they have to feed regularly.
