Instead of hugging each other to express friendliness, emperor penguins do it to share their body warmth.


Hi,
Is "friendliness" in the above equal to "friendship?" If not, what are their differences? Thanks in advance.

    No, they are not the same. To express friendliness means to illustrate that they are friendly, as in, non-hostile. You can be friendly with someone without being in a friendship with them.
