Penguins are adorable flightless birds. There are a total of 17 species of living penguins in the wild. Penguins are often mistaken to have fur over their body which is because of the short feathers. As many of us think, penguins’ feathers are not as soft as we think.
The black and white camouflage body is common in all the species of penguins. The plumages of penguins are strong and stiff since it has to be waterproof. We cannot expect a soft touch when we try to feel the penguins.
