Seals stay warm on land by their thick layer of feathers but obviously they are no good when the seals are swimming as they are wet. When seals swim they use their thick layer of blubber to protect them from the freezing conditions of Antarctica's seas.
The basic diet of Seals consists of fish.
Some seals eat ice and snow to get the fresh water they need to survive.
Seals don’t really have any natural predators.
They are not scared of humans like other species of Antarctic animals
Some baby seals get clubbed to death by poachers for their pelts/fur.

Penguins are warm-blooded animals and they have insulation that helps them stay warm in the cold.
They have small feathers which are lightly covered in oil and overlap like roof-tiles . Underneath their feathers is a layer of blubber that also helps them stay warm.
Penguins bodies are shaped slightly like submarines so it is easier for them to dive into the water and catch their prey and they have large thick bones which increase body weight and makes it easier to dive.
Penguins also live in colonies and waddle around in a large circle and take turns so that every penguin in that group can have a go at being warm in the centre of the huddle
