The gentoo penguin can swim up to 36 km/h through the water before piercing its surface, shooting through the air and “landing” on solid ground.

That makes these otherwise flightless birds the fastest of their kind.

Here during November and December, this meager 5 square kilometers of land is shared by up to 9,000 mating penguin couples.
