Since penguins produce heat, huddling can increase density, and allows heat and temperature to increase within the huddled group. As penguins are endothermic animals, meaning they
Antarctic birds and mammals - penguins, whales and seals - are warm blooded animals and they maintain similar internal body temperatures to warm blooded animals in any other climate
The one's in the middle get protected from the wind which is a big factor and they do change places while huddling. They also create a mini climate amongst themselves, the warm air
