Okay, okay. Penguins can fly, can’t they? Some of our team at work are saying they can’t, but I find it all a bit confusing because they’re birds. Please help!!!

No, penguins can’t fly. (Although batman penguin can float using his umbrella)
Penguins aren’t able to fly as their ‘wings’ are built for swimming rather than flying like other birds.
No, Adam. Penguins can’t fly, although they are birds with wings. This is because penguins winds are different to other ‘normal’ birds as their wings have sort of evolved to allow them to swim. Because their wings are built for swimming, this means that flying isn’t possible for penguins.
