How long have penguins been around?
they have been aound for many years since they are animals
The larger penguins can dive deeper than the smaller penguins. Emperor Penguins have been recorded diving to depths below 1,800 feet (565m), for as long as 22 minutes. So that would include the Epipelagic zone (surface level down to 650 feet [200 metres]) and part of the Mesopelagic zone (650 feet to 3,300 feet [200m to 1,000 metres]).
In Antarctica, there aren't any land animals that eat penguins. The only animals that eat penguins are some of the whale species. This changes where penguins live further north. For example, on Australia's southern coast, where Fairy Penguins (also known as Little penguins) roost at night, domestic dogs have been getting past the protective barriers and killing them.
Penguin life span varies according to the species. Penguins in captivity live longer than those in the wild, as they do not face the same dangers. The average lifespan of penguins tends to be around 20 years, but below are some penguin life span facts: The oldest known wild Adelie penguin reached 20 years of age. The average life expectancy of the Emperor penguin is 19.9 years, which means that some specimens have lived for…
