|Adaptations for the Cold||
They have a configuration of feathers that creates a water tight
seal so that air is trapped under the feathers. The air is then heated
by the body and acts like a second layer of fat.
|Adaptations of the Body Structures||
The most noticeable and advantageous of these is the bone structure.
the bones of a Penguin are significantly denser than that of any other
bird on earth. They have these dense bones so that is i easier to dive,
and a Emperor Penguin can dive up to 800 meters or 2642.5 feet in one
breath. This is also aided by the abnormally large and efficient lungs
that birds have.
|Adaptations for Reproduction||Penguins have to eat in large amounts to store body fat so that when their single egg comes they can take care out it. to do this the Penguin must stand for three months on the egg to keep it warm, otherwise it would freeze.|
