Emperor penguin chick and adulta (Aptenodytes forsteri), Snow Hill Island

Emperor penguin chick and adulta (Aptenodytes forsteri), Snow Hill Island, Weddell Sea, Antarctica, Polar Regions The Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) is the tallest and heaviest of all living penguin species. It is the only penguin that breeds during the winter in Antarctica. Emperor Penguins eat mainly crustaceans (such as krill) but also occasionally indulge in small fish and squid. In the wild, Emperor Penguins typically live for 20 years, but some records indicate a maximum lifespan of around 40 years. The Emperor Penguin should not be confused with the closely related King Penguin or the Royal Penguin

King Penguins breed on the subantarctic islands at the northern reaches of Antarctica, South Georgia, and other temperate islands of the region. The total population is estimated to be 2.23 million pairs and is increasing. The King Penguin is the second largest species of penguin at about 90 cm (3.0 ft) tall and weighing 11 to 16 kg (24 to 35 lb) Like all penguin species, it has a streamlined body to minimize drag while swimming, webbed feet to propel more force when swimming, and wings that have become stiff, flat flippers
