Penguins — a family of flightless marine birds that live in the open sea of the southern hemisphere.
Few can remain unmoved by the sight: on land, penguins walk clumsily waddling and holding the torso upright from time to time dropping belly in the snow and slide on it, pushing with all four limbs…
The chances of the penguins on survival during the first 12 months is quite low. The mortality rate of penguin Chicks is very high: from hunger, cold and predators (Skuas) often kills up to 70% of all hatched Chicks.
The penguins often nest in large colonies, often numbering ten thousand pairs or more. In hatching of eggs (usually 1-2 pieces) and the feeding of the Chicks involved both parents. Hiding from the cold the young penguins find refuge in the lower folds of the abdomen of the parent. The incubation period of different species ranges from one to two months.
The ancestors of penguins live in temperate climates — when Antarctica was a solid block of ice. But the climate of the planet has changed, the continents drifted and shifted Antarctica to the South pole, being covered with eternal ice. Many of the animals left or died out, and the penguins adapted to cold and left.
