Animals that live in Antarctica well adapt to the freezing temperatures and settle down comfortably. Antarctica is crowded with all different types of animals. On the penguins feet they do not have feathers. In the summer penguins pant to lose heat. Some animals only come to live in Antarctica in Summer. When penguins are under water their feathers keep a layer of air in their body to keep them warm.
