Penguins are fascinating animals. All their oddities have very good reasons for being in place even though it might be hard to understand how. For instance, why do penguins have those small wings if they can’t fly through the air? Easy when you think of it; they evolved to fly through the water not the air.

Why do penguins have the distinctive black-and-white coloring? It’s called countershading. When they are swimming, or flying, underwater, the underside of the animal blends in with the sky about. When viewed from the top, the black coloring blends in with the ocean’s floor.

If you see a group of penguins in the water, they are called a raft. If you see them gathered on land, they are called a waddle instead.

If these jokes amuse you, head on over to lion puns and bear puns.
