-How it adopted
Adaptation is when a animal that changes to live in its environment. The penguin adapted to its environment that is Antarctica. It has found some ways to survive in its freezing environment. Antarctica is a dessert that is very freezing and has very low temperatures. There are not many plants and animals that survive in such freezing temperatures.
There are two different kinds of desert that are the hot and cold deserts. The penguin lives in the cold dessert that has very below freezing temperatures. Not many plants and animals survive in the frosty Antarctica. The desert have very less rain.The Antarctica is the biggest cold desert in the world.
The penguin is a flightless bird. Furthermore it uses its wings as flippers in the water.Penguins can drink the sea water and eat a range of fish.There are lots of types of penguins that are the Emperor Penguin,Little Blue Penguin, King Penguin, Crested Penguin, Chinstrap Penguin,Yellow Eyed Penguin and many more.The penguin swims a lot to get food.
The penguins have successfully adapted to its icy home that is Antarctica.Penguins are clever birds that are flightless and have found many ways to survive in Arctic. It has black feathers that helps it take the heat in so it does not get too hot.Penguins also have white skin so that they can reflect some of the heat otherwise they will get too heated up.
Overall I think penguins are fascinating birds that have found ways to survive in the icy home of Antarctica and has developed to use its wings as flippers in the shivering water.
