Humboldt penguins were built for the water. They have stiff, close-packed feathers for insulation and water proofing. Their wings act as flippers that can propel them through the water at speeds of up to 30 mph!
Humboldt penguins are social and gregarious birds. In the wild, they are usually found in groups along the coast of Chile and Peru. These penguins get their name from the Humboldt current, which carries cold ocean water through this part of the world.
