WEFOUNDPenguin's Family: The Story of a Humboldt Penguin - a Smithsonian Oceanic Collection Book (with audiobook CD)


Not only are the Penguins an elite team force, but they are also their own family. A Family of brothers who have known each other since they were young children.

Skipper is the leader of the quartet, often giving out orders and his brothers always follow him, no matter what (except the time in "I Was a Zombie Penguin when they thought he was a zombie) . He is implied to be the oldest of them.Though he appears to be tough in front of his brothers, Skipper is actually only human, so to speak, as he fears things like all the others do. He also has a soft spot for Private.

Private has an uncle named Nigel, who is a secret agent. The older three brothers find him utterly annoying and boring until they all learn that he is actually what Private said he was.

Penguins are a family of 17 to 19 species of birds that live primarily in the Southern Hemisphere. They include the tiny blue penguins of Australia and New Zealand, the majestic emperor penguins of Antarctica and king penguins found on many sub- Antarctic islands, the endangered African penguin and the Galápagos penguin—the only penguin to be found north of the equator.

Though they are birds, penguins have flippers instead of wings. They cannot fly and on land they waddle walking upright—though when snow conditions are right they will slide on their bellies. In the water they are expert swimmers and divers, and some species can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour. The penguin’s distinctive coloring—black body with white belly—helps camouflage the bird in the water as it searches for meals of small shrimp, fish, crabs and squid.

From the underwater dance of seahorses to the enthusiastic leg-lifts of the peacock spider, the animal kingdom is full of quirky and intriguing methods to impress the opposite sex.
