Fact of the Day: Penguin Water

Like all birds, fresh-water is better for a penguin's biological system however access to fresh water is limited for penguins. They do have a special gland that filters out salt-water before it reaches the rest of their system.

I did not know this. How interesting that they would be better with fresh water. I wonder what the zoos do?

I did not know that! I'm wondering if there is anything we can learn from penguin biology that could apply to desalinating water.
