Collin SmithScience 8Newton Adaptations of the Galápagos penguin. Some behavioral adaptations of the Galápagos penguin would be the strange hunched posture it uses to cool off. This posture is used to prevent the sun from directly heating up its feet due to its exposed skin. This as well as spreading its wings because blood flow can give off heat better in its wing than any other part of its body. Behavioral Physiological Some physiological adaptations include the fact that they thermo-regulate, meaning that they stay the same body temperature. As well as the fact that they lay eggs as a means of reproduction. Structural Some structural adaptions would be its flippers to improve swimming, it's black back and white stomach as came from above and below, and it's slick feathers to repel water. Some other structural adaptation include its small size for better heat management, a large bill to help catch the small food it eats and a streamline body to increase speed in the water.
