Creature Day/Emoeror penguin

I do not know why but for some reason I forgot to do a post yesterday but this morning I am with it..............................kinda................................

Tuesday is creature day and today's creature is the Emperor Penguin, it is the tallest and heaviest of all living penguin species and is endemic to Antarctica. The male and female are similar in plumage and size, reaching 122 cm in height and weighing from 22 to 45 kg.

They are found all around the coasts of the Antarctic continent. They breed during the depths of the Antarctic winter and in some of the most desolate, coldest, windiest and downright grim places on the planet during the season of 24 hour darkness.

Some emperor penguins are the only birds that never set foot on land.

It is difficult enough survive in Antarctica, let alone breed, the female lays the egg in the mating are, after the chick hatches she leaves it with the male and goes in search of food which she stores in her stomach and coughs up to feed the chick.

To avoid freezing they have a thick layer of fatty blubber under their skin and a blubbery, feathery brood pouch just above their feet, where the egg or chick can shelter. The parents need to take care not to drop the egg onto the ice or it will quickly freeze.
