Are there any penguins that can live in fresh water?

    Humboldt penguins are usually kept in fresh water at zoos. Penguins have a gland that removes salt from their systems when salt water is consumed, but a dormant gland of this kind does not adversely affect them.

    The Humboldt Penguin can live in fresh water.  They typically do so in zoos, where their supraorbital gland (which enables them to drink salt water) is dormant.  Living in fresh water does not affect their health.
