All About Emperor Penguins
With movies like March of the Penguins and Happy Feet these black and white beauties have gotten a lot of publicity over the past few years. One of the few bird species that cannot fly, emperor penguins spend most of their lives in the sea as they are very good swimmers. Emperor Penguins, the largest penguin species, grow up to 3.7 feet tall and weigh about 65 pounds, roughly half the size of an adult person. Like all penguin species, emperor penguins have big heads, short thick necks, a streamline shape, and a short, wedge-shaped tail. With tiny flapper like wings and webbed feet for swimming these things are quite the sight. Described as counter shaded, emperor penguins have a light belly color and dark back, helping them stay camouflaged in the water to avoid predators. A carnivorous bunch, they eat mostly fish and squid. Living on pack ice in Antarctica, colonies of emperor penguins have a thick layer of blubber and a layer of insulating down that keeps them warm in harsh temperatures. Though they may not look it, penguins have tons of waterproof feathers that keep their skin dry. Just like most birds they molt their feathers each year and grow new ones.
