All penguins are birds. They all live south of the equator. They have wings, but they can't fly. They use their wings like flippers when they swim. They swim fast and spend most of their time in the water. They have heavy bones so they can go deep in the water. They have webbed feet to help them when they are swimming.

Seals are only an enemy to penguins when they are in the water. They are not an enemy to healthy adult penguins on land because they can't move as fast as penguins. In the water seals try to eat penguins because they have krill in their stomachs
