Penguins have wings like flippers, to help them swim underwater. Air-filled, heavy bones, helps them swim through heavy water. They have feet, for walking on land, also layers of feathers, outside feather is short, stiff, it is waterproof, and the blubber layer for warmth. King Penguin do not build nests. They are social. Penguins also have a deep-diving ability.
