Penguin native to South America: South of Argentina, Chile but it travels to the Antarctic, South Africa and New Zealand. Together with the Emperor Penguin they are the only penguins that don’t nest as the only egg they lay they carry with them throughout the day on top of their feet and covered by a fold in the skin of their stomachs. This area is very vascular in order to increase the heat in this area and keep the egg warm.
The parents pass the egg from one to the other, leaving it on the ground and the other parent places it on his or her feet. In these species the theft of both eggs and chicks is common due to the great parental instinct they have. In inexperienced parents, it is not uncommon for them to break the egg in a fight or when moving around.
