World Penguin Day fun fact! Although flightless in the tradition sense, penguins “fly” underwater at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour! When they are being chased by a potential predator such as a hungry sea lion, they will head for the surface and launch themselves up and out of the water at such high speed they can sometimes propelled themselves as high as three meters up into the air!
