Facts:

  • Distinguishing Features: The archetypal penguin that looks like a man in his dinner suit. The simple plumage ensures good camouflage against predators (black back against the dark depths of the sea, and white belly against the bright sea surface above).
  • Habitat: One of two penguin species that is strictly Antarctic.
  • Height & Weight: Adults grow as tall as 2.5 feet. Males weigh between 10 and 12 pounds. Females weigh 11 pounds less.
  • Population: Approximately 2,500,000 breeding pairs. The population is stable, but there is fear of a decline due to global warming.
  • Breeding: Breed on exposed rock throughout the Antarctic continent. There are reported 177 separate sites comprising some 1,030 colonies.
  • Nesting: Build rough nests of stones. Typically two eggs are laid and are incubated for 30-40 days by both parents, who take turns.
  • Diet: Krill makes up 99% of their diet, but they will also eat fish and squid.
  • Gender Differences: Males are slightly larger than females, especially their bills.
  • How They Got Their Name?: They were named from Adélie Land, where they were first scientifically described in 1840 by French explorer Jules Dumont d’Urville, who named this portion of Antarctica in honor of his wife, Adelie.
