Adelie Penguins

One of the most common and well known of all Antarctic penguin species, Adelie penguins can be found forming colonies on islands, beaches, and headlands all around the Antarctic coast.
Size: About 30 inches tall and 11 lbs.
Spotworthy: The Adelie penguin is the stereotypical penguin with a white tuxedo shirt front – the white ring around its eyes gives the bird a handsome, yet comical appearance . . . I think it looks like googly eyes from the craft store! Its beak is reddish with a black tip.
