The animal kingdom needs water to survive. Even the fanciest tuxedo wear penguins need water to not only drink but as the home to their meals as well.  Penguins use their flippers to swim in the water and find fish for their meals. Most penguins swim underwater at around four to seven miles per hour (mph), but the fastest penguin—the gentoo (Pygoscelis papua)—can reach top speeds of 22 mph!
