Ever wondered why penguins are black and white? This adaptation is a kind of camouflaging called counter-shading, which makes it harder for both their predators and their prey to see them. When penguins are in the water, their white chests camouflage them from being seen from below against the lighter sky. From above, their black backs help them blend in with the darker blue ocean waters. Photo by @sugarandteana #loveAOP #AOPpenguins

Are you an #AquariumMember family looking for new things to do on your weekly visits? How about bringing a book and practicing reading out loud with our animals! They''re great listeners. Photo by @eunicelizbeth #loveAOP
