is the word penguin a metaphor??

It could be, depending on how it is used. Metaphors are totally dependent on usage and how they are compared.

The men were penguins for the dinner, waddling to and fro.

ya but could i use it as a metaphor as in the animal penguin?

Yes, it could be a metaphor. I used it as the animal....That is what made it a metaphor. Usage determines if something is a metaphor.
