Description:

There is a whole lot more to these adorable tuxedo adorned birds than meets the eye. Penguins are remarkable creatures with fascinating behaviors. SMITHSONIAN Q & A: PENGUINS refutes common myths and reveals oftenunknown facts as it answers hundreds of unusual and fascinating questions about the complex courting, breeding, and eating habits of penguins. Why can't penguins fly? Do penguins make nests like other birds? Why do penguins fast annually? Do mates remain faithful for just one season, or for a lifetime? Hundreds of fullcolor photographs and illustrations enhance and illustrate the text. Published in association with the Smithsonian.
