King penguins Featured Royal Print

King penguins

King penguins (Aptenodytes patagonicus). Both parents take turns in incubating the egg, holding it on their feet (see bird at left). These birds are found in the subantarctic and on cool islands in temperate areas of the southern hemisphere. They are very social animals, living and breeding in large colonies which can contain thousands of birds. They feed on small fish and squid, diving below the surface of the water to catch their prey. They often hunt in groups. The king penguin is the second largest penguin in the world, reaching a height of around 1 metre. Only the emperor penguin is bigger. Photographed at Royal Bay, on the island of South Georgia

'Bowers, Wilson, and Cherry-Garrard About To Leave For Cafe Crozier', 27 June 1911, (1913)

'Bowers, Wilson, and Cherry-Garrard About To Leave For Cafe Crozier', 27 June 1911, (1913). Lieutenant Henry 'Birdie' Bowers (1883-1912), doctor and naturalist Edward Wilson (1872-1912) and zoologist Apsley Cherry-Garrard (1886-1959) setting off on an expedition to collect penguin eggs. The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume II. [Smith, Elder & Co., London, 1913]
