    I would really like penguins as a bird lover myself, but they already have an arctic area where polar bears live. Besides, penguins and polar bears don't live together. Maybe they could make another arctic world where polar bears don't spawn.

    If they do add penguins I feel that they should act similar to turtles with how they breed and lay eggs. 

    when a baby penguin hatches maybe they could drop an item that would help for snowier biomes or deep snow.

    I would really like to see penguins added to the game, I have a few suggestions based of other peoples comments and few ideas of my own, I would really like the penguins to be about one block tall with a wide base at the bottom and two more layers that get smaller on top, I would like the penguin to be tameable if possible, as I know u have your guidelines. I would like it to spawn in the tundra in groups of about 5. They should be able to mate with fish. I would also like them, if tameable to get fish when the player is in the water for more than a few seconds. I would also like the penguin to not die if it is brought outside of cold biomes. Thanks, I hope you add penguins to the game, and if you do, I can’t wait to see them!

    This has to be the best animal suggestion I've ever heard. :)

    Penguins

    • Spawn in groups of 5-20 in Antarctic oceans
    • 20% are babies, with the rest adults.
    • They are slow on land but faster in water and on ice, sliding on it on their bellies. 
    • They swallow whole Antarctic silverfish, leaving nothing behind
    • After that, the penguin will not eat for the rest of the day.
    • Penguins will ‘feed’ their young after swallowing a fish.
    • Babies wander on the ice, not entering the water at all. 
    • If pushed in, they will swim back out to the safety of the ice.
    • Seals will eat penguins, but they(seals) are slow on land and ice, and can only catch them if they enter the water.
    • Polar bears will ignore penguins, and likewise.
    • The penguins are about 1 meter tall and look like emperor penguins.
    • Babies are about the size of bees
    • Penguins lay eggs upon you breeding them with Antarctic silverfish.
    • These are about the size of turtle eggs, just larger.
    • The penguin lays the egg and then carries it on top of their feet so that it does not succumb to the cold
    • After a couple of days the penguin carrying the egg will drop it, and 5 seconds later the egg cracks slowly, eventually breaking and spawning a tiny baby chick.
    • Over the course of a few days, the baby will slowly grow, molting its smaller fluff for larger feathers. 
    • When the penguin grows up, it will shed off feathers like turtles do scutes.
    • Penguins need air.
    • After 10 minutes without air, they will die. 
    • They go up for air every 5 minutes
    • Penguins drop 0-2 feathers and 0-3 Antarctic silverfish.

    Frozen Oceans

    • Frozen oceans should be renamed to Arctic oceans, and Antarctic oceans, for the mobs that spawn there.
    • The ice should be several blocks thick
    • This will solve the problem of penguins being in the Antarctic and polar bears being in the Arctic.

    Maybe the penguins could eat squid.

    Very cute idea , penguins are very friendly too .. so if they were a mob I think they would bring fish and more gifts to you if you tame them.

    it should be like the turtles and protecting the babies should give you something in return

    I think they should spawn in the icy biome that has those mountain things. It would make more sense since the biome is icier.

    I have an extra idea to add on to it BoreeseTheWolf's; possibly when they adult has laid an egg (or its partner) it will keep them under it, as well as once they hatch the adults will still protect them and and drop fish and then have its young eat it; just an idea!

    So they should live in tundra and other snowy biomes. But I think polar bears and penguins shouldn't spawn near each other because they live at the North and South Pole, respectively.

    Yes, ice biomes are quite poor of peculiar mobs, penguins could be great for it, don't let polar bears alone.

    I mean yes, there are a million mobs in the nether and the other biomes. But, only one mob in the ice biome.

    *sad polar bear noises :(

    Adding penguins would be🔥🔥

    Hey,Devs! Please consider this as potential new feature in your next update,because it would add more looks on to icebergs and ice biomes.Maybe as he suggested,the penguins will drop fish(salmon,cod) and maybe snowballs,in addition to location they spawn in.Also,if they are tameable,that will be awesome,cause we could have one more companion,which we can take with us on adventures.

    Penguins can definitely fit in the mountain update as it also (kind of) relates to the cold and yes, Penguins spawning in icebergs make sense, and they shouldn’t spawn in the same place as polar bears. However, if they do come across each other, they are enemies and will fight.

    The eggs should be the same size as a turtles, maybe slightly bigger, and can’t be grouped, unlike turtle eggs. Same size as dragon eggs would be a bit unreal, y’know?

    They should only spawn on icebergs, and polar bears spawn in tundras.

    the polar bears don´t eat penguins, the polar bears live in the north pole and the penguins in the south pole.

    They could also spawn in the tundra and you should bring the ice spikes biome back! I mostly want to see the penguins slide everywhere that would be so cute!!!
