The African Penguin

The African Penguin is a little to average sized Penguin species that is discovered along the coast of South Africa and on a quantity of its surrounding islands. They are considered to be most narrowly linked to the Magellanic and Humboldt Penguins found in southern South America. The Galapagos Penguin existed in the Pacific Ocean close to the Equator. The African Penguin was named for the reality that it is the only type of Penguin that is originate breeding on the African Coast, and it is supposed to be one of the first Penguin species to be revealed by humans.

This kind of Penguin is a quite unique species of penguin with spotless black and white markings and a sharply pointed black beak. They are also has black feet and a lot of dot-like markings specked across it’s white upper body which are said to be as distinctive to the individual Penguin as a human being’s finger print is, along with a slight black band. The male African Penguin is commonly slightly bigger than their female equivalents but both are quite similar in appearance. One of the African Penguin’s most unique features is that they have pink glands on their eyes which assist them to cope with the moderate climates. The hotter African Penguin acquires, the more blood is sent to these glands so it may be cooled by the nearby air, which in turn, makes these glands pinker.
