How Fast Can Penguins Swim?

Penguins are birds that swim; they do not fly. On an average, a penguin can swim on an average about 15 mph. Actually, they don't usually swim that fast, but when they are being pursued by a predator, those bad boys can pick up some speed. The Emperor penguin is the largest and fastest penguin.
