Cats and dogs might have won the title for being the most adorable animals but the crown for the cutest birds certainly goes to penguins. Their dominant monochrome colors, black on their backs and white underbelly like a neat tuxedo impart them a classy look. A splash of color on their beaks and their necks and crests for some species, adds a touch of style. Hence, we’ve got our readers a collection of free printable penguin coloring pages.
Penguins are aquatic birds and are expert swimmers. Having vestigial wings, they cannot fly. These flightless wings are their flippers used for swimming efficiently underwater. What has added to their mass appeal is their popular depiction on television and films. From tap-dancing their way into our hearts with their “Happy Feet” to riding high on the popularity wave in “Surf’s Up”, it is impossible not to love penguins, isn’t it? As much as they are loved, according to the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), depleting natural resources and changing climatic conditions have led to most of the penguin species being in danger of extinction.
We are taking you for an enjoyable and educational journey into the world of penguins through this collection of 30 penguin coloring sheets to print. You are sure to enjoy witnessing their fun and whimsical avatars, as well as get a glimpse of their real life.
