A raft or a Waddle
A group of penguins in the water is called a raft but on land they’re called a waddle. The black and white “tuxedo” look donned by most penguin species is a clever camouflage called counter shading. Most birds have hollow, air-filled bones to help them stay light for flight. Penguins adapted with solid bones instead. This helps them swim because solid bones reduce buoyancy, the tendency to float. A gland near the base of its tail provides waterproof oil. Penguins spend several hours each day covering their feathers with this oil. They give extra attention to the task before each swim.
