in h

Facts: 

  • Distinguishing Features: They are easily recognizable by the white “bonnet” on their heads.
  • They are the fastest underwater swimming penguins, reaching speeds of over 20 miles per hour.
  • Habitat: Live on many sub-Antarctic islands, with their main colonies on the Falkland, South Georgia and Kerguelen Islands.
  • Height & Weight: Adults reach a height of 21 to 3 feet. Males have their maximum weight of 18 pounds just before molting and their minimum weight of 12 pounds before mating. For females the maximum weight is 17 pounds just before molting, but their weight drops to below 11 pounds when guarding their nests.
  • Population: Approximately 320,000 breeding pairs.
  • Nesting: Nests are made from stones, sticks, grass, feathers, or any suitable material they can find. Two eggs are typically laid, with both parents sharing in incubation, changing duty daily. Eggs hatch after 34-36 days
  • Behavior: May start breeding at two years of age. By comparison with other penguins, Gentoo pair-bonds are often long-lasting, despite annual nest changes.
  • Diet: Live mainly on crustaceans such as krill, with fish making up only 15% of their diet
  • Gender Differences: Females are slightly smaller than males.

Can You Believe?: May make as many as 450 dives during a single days foraging! While they look clumsy on land, they can outrun humans over a short distance.
