Additional Details:
Next of the Emperor Penguin, the King Penguin is the largest living member of its group, which is characterized among other things by wings that are modified into swimming flippers. The King Penguin lays only one egg, and when hatched, the downy chick rests on the feet of the parents. The scene here is the island of South Georgia on the polar border of the South Atlantic Ocean.
