My Iceberg or Yours?
Penguins, one of about 40 species of the world’s flightless birds, can be found on every continent in the Southern Hemisphere. The Galapagos penguin inhabits the tropical islands of the same name near South America. Meanwhile, the cold-loving, tuxedo-wearing Emperor penguin (yes, those zany characters that appear in March of the Penguins) call Antartica home.
As humourous and adorable as these waddling fish-eaters can appear on land or ice, when underwater they become true missle-like warriors, holding their breath for up to 15 minutes and shooting as high as seven feet out of the waves, literally soaring. Flying penguin games give kids a chance to help them take to wing. With Flying Penguins and Learn to Fly, these ingenious birds try to make it into the air and not come down until they are ready.
On an average day, penguins truly savour their quest for fish, capturing up to 30 in each dive. Yet they themselves make a tasty treat for orcas and other predators. With Pengu in Trouble, help protect this stranded guy and save him from a killer whale’s jaws, or smash greedy gulls with Penguin Slider.
Yet another danger to these popular and gregarious birds is, well, you guessed it, humans. Penguins are typically not afraid of people and are, sometimes, the victims of deplorable behavior. Keep your conscience clear and play penguin shooting games with them using ice cubes to knock them in the water in Penguin Arcade.
If you have ever seen a penguin plop on its tummy to whiz down the hill, that is called tobagganing. And they do it for sheer entertainment. So join in and slide into the fun with the penguin game of your choice.
