9 Vocabulary

10 Colony or Rookery colony or rookery – a group of penguins living together

11 Prey prey – food source; the food that is being hunted Fish Krill

12 Predator predator – the animal that is hunting for food (prey) prey

23 All About Penguins Penguins are birds, but they cannot fly!
Penguins swim very well. Penguins use their wings as flippers to help them swim as fast as 30 miles per hour. They also use their wings/flippers for balancing as they walk. Penguins get around land 3 ways: Hopping Waddling Tobogganing

24 All About Penguins Penguins live in large groups called colonies or rookeries. All penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere. Penguins catch their food in the ocean. Their prey are fish, squid, and tiny, shrimp-like krill. Penguins live in cold areas; feathers and blubber keep them warm. There are about 18 species of penguins. Penguins hatch from eggs. A baby penguin is called a chick.
