Chinstrap Penquin Facts: 

  • Distinguishing Features: They are particularly noisy penguins and are sometimes called Stonecrackers because of their piercing voices.
  • They are easily distinguished by the thin black stripe across the bottom of the throat that looks like a chinstrap.
  • Habitat: Breed on sub-Antarctic islands and on the Antarctic Peninsula. There are 780 known colonies.
  • Height & Weight: Adults reach a height of 21 feet. Their weight varies through the year, highest prior to molting and lowest while rearing chicks. Typical weights are 71 to 11 pounds.
  • Population: Approximately 7,500,000 breeding pairs.
  • Breeding: They usually breed on hillside slopes and rocky outcrops in colonies that can be enormous.
  • Nesting: They build circular nests of stones where typically two eggs are laid. They are incubated by both parents in shifts of 5 to 10 days. The eggs hatch after 33 to 35 days.
  • Diet: Rely mostly on krill, but supplement their diet with about 5% fish. 

Can You Believe?: One colony on the South Sandwich Islands is reputed to contain over 10,000,000 chinstrap penguins!
