FUNDAMENTAL FACTS ABOUT PENGUINS

create your own whiteboard animation

Penguins are aquatic, flightless birds that are highly adapted alive in the water. Their distinct tuxedo-like appearance is called countershading, a form of camouflage in order to keep them safe in the water. Penguins do have wing-bones, though they are flipper-like and extremely suitable for swimming. Penguins are found almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, where they capture their food underwater and raise their young on land.

Diet
Favorites: Krill, fish and squid.
In general, penguins closer to the equator eat much more fish and penguins closer to Antarctica eat more squid and krill.

Populace

The penguin species with the highest population is the Macaroni penguin with eleven, 654, 000 pairs. The species with the lowest population is the endangered Galapagos penguin with between 6, 000-15, 000 individuals.
Range
Penguins can be found in each continent in the Southern Hemisphere from the tropical Galapagos Islands (the Galapagos penguin) located near South America to Antarctica (the emperor penguin).

Behavoir
Penguins may spend up to 75% of their lives in the water. They do all of their hunting in the drinking water. Their prey can be found within 60 feet of the surface, so penguins do not have to swim in deep water. They catch prey in their beaks as well as swallow them whole as they swim. Some species only leave the water with regard to molting and breeding.

Penguins are social birds. Many species feed, go swimming and nest in groups. During the breeding season, some species form big groups, or “rookeries”, that include thousands of penguins. Each penguin has a distinct contact, allowing individuals to find their mate and their chicks even in large groups.

Duplication
Mating Season: Varies depending on the species, though most breed during spring and also summer.
Incubation: Varies from 1 month-66 days depending on the species.
Number of children: King and emperor penguins lay one egg. All other species of penguin place two eggs.

Vector Graphical



Not like JPEGs, GIFs, and BMP images, vector graphics are not necessarily made up of a grid of pixels. Instead, vector graphics are comprised of routes, which are defined by a start and end point, along with other points, curves, and angles along the way. A path can be a line, a square, a triangle, or a curvy shape. These paths can be used to create simple drawings or intricate diagrams. Paths are even used to define the characters of specific typefaces.

Since vector-based graphics are not made up of a specific number of dots, they can be scaled to a larger size and not lose any image quality. If you blow up some sort of raster graphic, it will look blocky, or "pixelated. " When you blow up a vector graphic, the edges of each object within the graphic stay simple and clean. This makes vector graphics ideal for logos, which can be small enough to appear on a organization card, but can also be scaled to fill a billboard. Common types of vector graphics include Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, and EPS files. Many Flash animations also use vector graphics, since they scale a great deal better and typically take up less space than bitmap images.
