Penguins are flightless birds that are famous for “wearing” a cute tuxedo and being adorable. There’s no other bird like a penguin… Ok, we kid, emus, ostriches and cassowaries cannot fly either. But penguins are our favorite of the kind!

Did you know there are 18 species of penguins? You probably think penguins only live in frozen waters, but that’s not true!

Some others live in the southern hemisphere, while others live on the Galapagos islands.

Penguins are beautiful creatures that we all love, and they definitely deserve their own fun facts coloring sheets.
