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.
