but when they reach the water, they dive into it and move by swimming. Penguins cannot attack your shark, and so pose no threat. Penguins behave idly, flapping their wings and pecking when undisturbed, but can be scared into diving into the water when your shark goes near them.

Appearance in Hungry Shark World

Penguins make an appearance in Hungry Shark Evolution's sequel Hungry Shark World. They spawn in the Arctic Ocean and usually spawn in lines on the surface. Their rarity makes them good for completing bird eating missions because of how plentiful they are. The species of penguins in this game are emperor penguins.
