A friend of Penguin is good at the swimming, but the ability for prominent diving lets you match at the same time. In owner Emperor Penguin (about 120cm full length, 19-46kg in weight) of the greatest build, it takes about 10 minutes for a vegetable diet, and there seems to be the record that went under water more than depth of the water 400m. Speaking of depth of the water 400m, the unimaginable water pressure appears. At depth of the water 20m, a tennis ball is slightly flattened by the water pressure. In addition, it cannot bear the change of the sudden water pressure when it catch a fish from the deep sea of depth of the water 400m, and a tire tube and the eyes of the fish come. It does not yet understand how Penguin overcomes this severe condition.
