How fast do penguins swim?

    Good question, rachaelneal.  According to an informational page about penguins from Seaworld, the fastest penguins are Emperor penguins that reach speeds of 9 miles per hour.  I also found a wikipedia site claiming that Gentoo penguins are the fastest at about 22 miles per hour.  There was no citation for that claim, however, so I am going to go with Seaworld on this one unless anyone else can find otherwise.

    And, just for the fun of it, here is a video of some Emperor penguins that I thought was pretty entertaining. Especially the penguin staring at the ship at the end.

    Hope this helps!
