This creature can be found in the Photic zone, where the abiotic factors consist of currents, temperature, and sunlight....

In the Pelagic zone, where abiotic factors consist of water, dissolved gases, and light salinity....

and lastly found in the Neritic zone, where abiotic factors consist of sunlight, minerals, and temperature.

Traits that make this creature suitable to travel through these zones are....

it's thick fur for warmth outside the Neritic zone....

it's webbed feet that propels this creature through the water at rapid speeds....

and it's razor sharp flippers that not only protect it from predators in all zones, but also help the creature's swimming.

The Milo Pinguino moves very much. It swims at over 75 mph. It swims in a rotational way. Almost like a drill.

It also waddles on land (where it lives). It uses its webbed feet to grasp the land.

The Milo Pinguino eats a large variety of food. Their diet usually consists of small to large fish, crustaceans, and octopus. This creature usually extends its sharp flippers,while swimming, and attacks its prey. After the hunt they either will enjoy their meal in the water or bring it up to their families above water.

This creature can vary in sizes from 3-5 feet in height. It has dark blue fur with a pattern of white on its stomach. This creates an counter shock for other organisms. Looking down upon the Milo pinguino, it seems to blend in with the dark ocean waters. Looking up upon this creature, it seems to blend in with the sunlight reflecting upon the ocean.

The Milo Pinguino has razor sharp flippers and a lean pointed beak to protect itself. When threatened, this creature extends it's flippers and swims in a rotational direction to avoid contact.

The Milo Pinguino is nektonic

It uses it's nostrils on it's pointed beak to breath air in and out. The Milo Pinguino cannot breath underwater, but it can hold its breath for up to 30 minutes at a time.

This creature reproduces sexually with the opposite sex of the same species. After intercourse, the female lays eggs and the father protects it in a burrow surrounded by snow and other Milo Pinguinos.
