1. Everyone knows penguins don’t fly. But once they did! Evolution decided that is more useful for penguins to swim than to fly. Their physique looks like a torpedo. Speed of penguin in water increases to 60 km/h whereas on ground he is clumsy.
2. Penguin live in the herd, sometimes very big. The biggest herb (on Zavodovski Island) numbers circa 2 millions of penguins. Every once and a while one of penguins separates from the group and commits suicide in that way. We still don’t know why they do this.
3. Penguins recognize only two tastes: sour and salty.
4. Penguins really like to play with each other. They are ticklish and react with sounds like laugh.
