Penguins come ashore on ice during their breeding season. As soon as they get on the ice, at a temperature of -40 degrees, they are struggling with the Antarctic cold. They protect themselves with their tightly structured feathers and oils. They are able to control their own body temperature when it comes to it. Penguins, which can swim at a speed of 10 nautical miles per hour in the sea, feed on cuttlefish in particular, as well as fish and crustaceans in the seas. Their size decreases as their habitat approaches warmer areas. there are differences in height between 30 and 105 decimals depending on the species. In ancient times, it was found that there were penguins that could reach human height. It is known that penguins who have been separated from their mates for a long time can jump over the water to a height of up to 2 meters. Unfortunately, because of their structure, which loves people, they are hunted for their fat.
