There’s a Lot of Variety in the Penguin Family


There’s a lot of variety in the penguin family. Many people think that all penguins look alike, but nothing could be further from the truth. Every species has its own unique markings and colors. And penguins come in many different sizes.
The largest are the emperor penguins, and the smallest are the little blue penguins. (See if you can find them in the picture.) A full-grown emperor can stand almost 3½ feet tall. And it can weigh more than 90 pounds. Little blue penguins are only about 16 inches tall. And they weigh less than 2½ pounds.
