Gentoo Penguins

The Gentoo penguin has the widest range of distribution of any penguin with, the most significant populations concentrated on the Antarctic peninsula and subantarctic islands and other breeding colonies of Gentoos are found on South Georgia, the Falkland Islands, and the Kerguelen Isles.
Size: About 30 inches tall and 12 lbs.
Spotworthy: Gentoos are distinguished by their bright red-orange bills and conspicuous white patches behind their eyes. Long stiff tail feathers stick out behind them as they walk and cock up in the water when they're swimming, making them fairly easy to spot.
