1.  Do Penguins live at the North or South Pole?

 

Ummm... I think South. Although I'm not really sure. I should be thoroughly ashamed of that... they could live at both?

 

2.  Are Penguins hatched or born?

 

Now I know that they are an egg and the father sits on it while the mother runs off... so I'm going to say that they are born by hatching?

 

3.  Name three Penguins from cartoon fame.  (NOT from movies...as in TV cartoons, newspaper and print)

 

Eeek... Ooooh! Pingu! Umm... not sure of any others I'll think on it.

 

4.  Name four movie Penguins!

 

I know there was a recent penguin movie (or three!)

 

5.  What was the children's story about Penguins named?

 

I'm sure there's been more than one.... :( Not doing very well at this am I.

 

6.  What is the natural enemy of the Penguin?

 

Killer Whale? Seal?

 

7.  True or False...penguins have feathers.

 

True...? Although it looks more like fur which is why I like them!

 

8.  True or False...all penguins are black and white.

 

False?? I thought many were but some have colours here and there but not on their feathers so I don't know...

 

9.  Are Penguins an endagered species?  or are any of the variations of the species endangered?

 

I'm fairly sure that there are some endangered species...

Hug you Penguin answers..

 

Ok folks..lots of good answers…some even right!!  LOL.  I really didn’t’ have any idea when I posted them what the answers were..so doing a little research this is what I have discovered!

 

1.  Do Penguins live at the North or South Pole?

Penguin’s are navtive to the South Pole, Antartica, but only a few species actually leave there!  Penguins are also found in temperate climate zones, going as far north as the Galapagos Islands.

 

2.  Are Penguins hatched or born?

Penguins are of the Bird species.  *grins*  This means they are hatched!  As  most of us know from the recent movies..the male actually hatches egg, carrying it on it’s feet, warming the egg from it’s body heat, while the female goes hunting.  When the female returns, care of the young is shared.

 

3.  Name three Penguins from cartoon fame.  (NOT from movies...as in TV cartoons, newspaper and print)

Three of my favorites…*grins*

4.  Name four movie Penguins!

Wheezy from “Toy Story II”; those four or was it five adorable dancing Penguins in “Mary Poppins”, the cast of  “Happy Feet”..Mumble, Memphis..and the cast of “Surf’s Up”….Cody Maveric…

 

 

5.  What was the children's story about Penguins named?

There may be many children’s stories about Penguins, but the one I know of and grew up loving is Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater, published in 1938.  It is often included in 2,3,and 4th grade reading lists in America.  It is a delightful story of a poor housepainter who inherits 12 Penguins, and has to figure out what to do before the Penguins eat the family out of house and home..and how to cater to the birds special needs!  It’s a great book!

 

6.  What is the natural enemy of the Penguin?

The natural enemy of the Penguin are water creatures.  There are no land predators in the Antartic.  They are at risk from the Leopard Seal and Orca’s.  With the andvances of civilization other predators have been introduced..rats, dogs and foxes who steal the eggs and the young.

 

7.  True or False...penguins have feathers

TRUE!  Again Penguins are of the bird species.  They have a thick layer of insulating feathers to keep them warm.  While the top feathers are water resistant.  Penguins spend half their life on land, and half in the water.

 

8.  True or False...all penguins are black and white

TRUE..but….one in about 50,000 Penguins are born with brown feathers.  They tend to not survive as long because the coloring of the Penguin is for camoflauge.  All of these birds have a white underside protecting them in the water as the white blends with the reflecting water, and for the most part a dark upperside, mostly black that hides them from above!

 

9.  Are Penguins an endagered species?  or are any of the variations of the species endangered?

Today the Penguin is not an endangered species.  In times past that was not the case.  Hunted by man for oil, meat, skins and their eggs, some species were destroyed to exctinction.  An environmental act ended that practice in the very early 1900’s, although as recent as 1980 a Japenese company petitioned for permission to hunt the birds for oil and to use their skins to make golfing gloves.  They were refused.

 

A greater danger to Penguins in our world is the effects of Global Warming as their natural habitats are threatened and the advance of civilization corrupts their nesting habitats.  Along with this is the competition for food with fishermen for fish and shrimp.

 

10.  What famous soft drink has made the penguin popular in commercials?

Grins.  The COKE commercials are some of my favorite holiday commercials!  Remember the cuddly Polar Bears..and the penguins..sharing a Coke and the spirit of the Season?

 

 

*lol*  this was fun!!  and Sienna I will pass your thanks on to Kat..hopefully she will drop by soon!!!

 

OK more penguin fun...catch the "Smack the Penguin" game and coming soon...a Penguin Craft!!
