What is the penguin's life cycle?


A penguin is a flightless bird that spends most of its life in water and can swim very well. There are various types of penguins including the Macaroni penguin, Royal penguin and the Emperor penguin. The life cycle of a penguin begins with a female penguin laying an egg after mating. This in turn hatches into a chick which grows into an adult penguin which then mates then breeds and finally moults. For a detailed life cycle of a penguin, visit websites such as adelie or kidcyber.
