There’s just something fascinating about penguins. These flightless birds – so awkward on land yet so graceful in the water – lost the ability to fly millions of years ago but developed powerful flippers and streamlined bodies. They’re the fastest swimming and deepest diving species of any birds and can stay underwater for up to 20 minutes at a time.
Penguins can cry, too – sort of. Penguins drink seawater, but their bodies can separate the salt from the water. Where does that salt go? It comes out of their noses in salty tears!
They’ve been celebrated in countless documentaries, books, and animated films: “Smile and wave, boys.” Remember that from “Madagascar”? A penguin is an NHL team mascot, the logo for a long-time publishing house, and the inspiration for one very nasty villain in the Batman comic books, tv, and movie franchise.
Some of these facts were new to us until we heard about National Penguin Day and Penguin Awareness Day, both of which fall on January 20 every year. During these cold winter months, we’re thinking about these beautiful birds and the many artistic ways we can help you celebrate them.
