Read the following paragraph and answer the questions below.


Emperors are the largest of all penguins each penguin is about 45 inches (115 centimeters) tall. These flightless animals live on the Antarctic ice.

They have special feathers and fat in their bodies to keep them warm, Emperor penguins spend the long winter on the open ice, where everything is frozen and they even breed during this cold season. Mothers lay just one single egg and the father takes care of it. Then mothers leave the rookery and go on a two months trip! They need to travel some 50 miles (80 kilometers) just to reach the open ocean, where they will eat fish, squid, and krill.

Penguin fathers keep the new laid eggs warm, during this two-months fathers don´t eat anything and wait until mothers return, after many days babies peck and hit the egg until they break it and hatch.

When female penguins return to the rooker , they bring a belly full of food that they regurgitate for the new chicks. Meanwhile, male emperors go the sea in search of food for themselves, penguins don’t have wings they have flippers to help them swim.

Mothers care for their young chicks and protect them they cuddle and preen them to keep them warm. In December, Antarctic summer, the pack ice begins to break up and open water appears near the breeding site, just as young emperor penguins are ready to swim and fish on their own.
