Penguin Pictures

Penguins are the most famous natural inhabitants of Antarctica, the ice-covered continent around Earth's South Pole. Penguins are birds which can not fly, but can waddle on their short legs, ski on their bellies on the endless ice, and swim and dive like a seal. Add their looks to it, and no wonder kids like them. The pictures in this page were taken by NOAA scientific researchers in Antarctica and nearby islands.
