When a male wants to attract a mate, he will arch his back, stretch out his neck and let out a long honking call.

Unique among penguins, Emperor dads produce and secrete a curdlike susstance from their oesophaguses.
If a chick hatches before mum returns from her foraging at sea,  Impatient he can feed this "penguin milk" to his chick, ensuring it's survival for up to two weeks.

Why do penguins waddle?

 Their short, stubby legs make it impossible for them to walk.


But they can still  eh

They pick up stones and store them in their crop. This helps them to float when they are in water.

They have more feathers per square inch that keeps them warm in frigid waters.

Penguins communicate with each other through body language.
