Pre-Series   Season 1   Season 2   Season 3    

While it is known that real penguins regurgitate fish to feed chicks, Rico seems to possess a talent for regurgitation of anything and everything the penguins might need, like explosives and other weapons, as well as many things they don't need, like anchors and fully inflated beach balls. He has an apparently limitless holding capacity in his gut - room enough to even hold a small elevator and a spiral staircase in All Choked Up.

As well as regurgitating things, Rico is sometimes shown (or referenced) to eat things he regurgitates later, and even occasionally used as a vacuum cleaner.
