Emperor Penguins

Penguin looks very beautiful and many cartoons have been designed by animators with the penguin characters which attract the children much. There are 17 types of penguin and Emperor penguins are the largest of all, growing up to 1.3m tall and weighting up to 45kg. They live in the Antarctica, one of the coldest places in Earth, where there are an estimated 200,000 breeding pairs.
The female Penguin lays a single egg, and then sets out to sea to feed while the male guards the egg for about 2 months. He keeps the egg warm by balancing it on his feet, beneath his body. Young chicks stay with their mothers for about 7 weeks, and then gather together in a group, or creche to keep warm.
