Emperor Penguin Coloring Pages
The genus of the emperor penguins is one of the oldest in its family, and it is with the appearance of its representatives that most of us associate the word “penguin”.
However, the black and white plumage of these birds with an orange-yellow neck is not characteristic of its relatives.
Emperor penguins are also larger and heavier than other species, they do not build nests, and the eggs incubate in a unique fold of skin on the stomach.
The male emperor penguin reaches a height of 130 cm, its average weight is between 35 and 40 kg and can reach a maximum of 50 kg.
Females reach a height of about 115 cm and weigh up to 32 kg. Of all modern penguins, this species is the largest.
The color of the emperor penguin’s plumage on the back is black. In the chest area, it is white. These colors help the bird to remain invisible to predators in the water.
The areas under the neck and cheeks of the emperor penguin are painted orange-yellow. The newborn chicks are covered with white or greyish white fluff.
The emperor penguin’s food consists of fish, squid, and krill. The birds hunt in the ocean in large groups.
These “organizations” of penguins swim directly into the fish school and quickly attack their prey, pecking at everything they see in front of them.
The penguins eat small prey right in the water, but the larger ones are caught and brought to the surface, where they then cut and eat.
During the hunt, emperor penguins can swim long distances while moving at a speed of 45-58 km / down to a depth of 500 meters. Penguins can be underwater for up to 15 minutes.
During the hunt, these birds focus mainly on their sight and, therefore, only dive deeply in a good light.
