  1. Emperor penguins are fascinating creatures. You probably know about the male penguin going for months without food in order to keep the egg warm. But did you know that Emperor Penguins dive into the sea and then leap out on to the ice at speeds of 19km/hr? Yeah.

    Also, their feathers are really dense and trap air in between them. When released, this creates a layer of bubbles around the bird that helps reduce drag! Physics. It makes the world go round.
