Aptenodytes patagonicus, commonly known as the Emperor Penguin, is the largest species of penguin in the world, and is native to Antarctica and can be found on many sub-Antarctic islands. The Emperor Penguin has a black head and back with white underparts and a yellow patch on its neck. Its bill is orange-yellow with a black tip. These birds are well adapted for life in cold climates, having thick layers of feathers that insulate them from extreme temperatures. They feed mainly on krill, squid, fish and other crustaceans which they catch while swimming underwater using their wings as flippers. Emperor Penguins are social creatures that form large colonies during breeding season when they lay one egg per pair which both parents take turns incubating until it hatches after about two months.
