    I think that the penguin should be a mob, the same height as a creeper, it should spawn in the iceberg biome, and it should dive into the water to and swim around. It should be a friendly mob, like chickens, and be a little slow on land, it should have 5 lives and drop raw salmon and snowballs, they should spawn in little packs of 3. And the babies should be the size of rabbits for maximum cuteness. I really want them to be tameable, but I don't know. Oh Ya! They should also lat penguin eggs, which are the same as normal eggs,but when you through them, instead of a chicken, a baby penguin and can be put in recipes as normal eggs.

    IRL penguins love to gathers pebbles to build their nests, they even steal pebbles from each other. Maybe this could be used for some cool game mechanic.

    I love this idea. They created pillagers in PE Version 1.9 so maybe in 2.0, they'll create arctic animals like seals and narwhals!

    Maybe the penguin could be the same height as a chicken and the babies the same size as the chicks. The penguins should probably have three textures(babies=fluffy like a new born emperor penguin chick, male and female with their own textures). The penguins can lay eggs after which the male sits on it eventually breaking in 2 in game days replacing it with a chick. Maybe a cute feeding animation when the chicks get fed. Polar bears will attack them if in range. Adding seals would be good since they are one of the many animals that kill penguins.

    Maybe the penguins could be tamed n used to catch fish for the player n collecting them using the fish barrel... This could be a very easily obtainable but maybe a bit time consuming food source...

    What about this idea, just like how dolphins bring you to treasure when fed cod, how about when you feed a penguin fish it has a small chance to bring you clay, coal, lapis, quartz, and maybe a much smaller chance of a diamond or something extremely rarely, since penguins bring pebbles to their loved ones! I think itd be funny. Also when breeding penguins how about actually have them carry their eggs around on their feet, itd add a cool breeding feature just like how turtles breed in sand which i feel is the very cool

    Hmm, perhaps leopard seals could do the job for attacking penguins instead, theyre one of the most frightening animals on earth in my opinion, like the mammal equivalent of sharks and they actually live in antarctica. I personally think it would make make more sense that penguins should only spawn on icebergs in deep frozen ocean and polar bears on icebergs in standard frozen ocean, I know minecraft isnt supposed to make sense but it just seems weird to have those mobs together.

    Great Idea!

    Maybe have the penguins spawn on a new biome instead: The Ice Cap Biome!

    This Biome would have packed ice blocks up to 30 blocks thick and be surrounded by sea ice

    It would also have small stone mountains poking up to 15 blocks above the ice!

    Lastly, the biome would be surrounded by deep ocean!

    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.

    I agree, but the penguins should be able to be tamed and follow you like a cute, cuddly, waddling pet. They should follow the owner, as well as be able to open doors, get in a minecart or boat with the owner, etc.

    I think penguins should go to the water, hunt fish, and if they have a baby the parents should feed it.

    There is a biom of ice ocean covered in icebergs. I would like to see such mountains covered with cute penguins, diving in the area and pulling on their bellies.

    The penguins and polar bears don't live on the same poles though ,

    I think the eggs would be more similar to turtle eggs already in the game. Also, it would be cool if they swam around hunting the nearby fish in the ocean.

    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.

    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.

    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🔥🔥

    Penguin should spawn on all icy biomes. They should lay their eggs were they spawn .It sould take 1-2 in game days for the eggs to hatch.The would spawn in groups to 5 or 4 and sometimes with babies.
