  • History:

    Although baby emperor penguins are reliant on their parents shortly after their birth, they become fairly self-sufficient after only one to two months. In fact, young penguins will form a “crèche,” in which they all huddle together and provide one another both warmth and protection. They do this because both parents must go out and hunt in order to provide enough food for the whole family.

    Emperor Penguins survive in some of the world??s coldest temperatures in Antarctica. They are famous for traveling 75 miles each winter to find a mate. Once they do, a single egg is created and is first cared for by the male while the female finds food.
