African penguins have a unique ecology because they're entirely removed from all other penguin populations living and breeding on islands in the temperate waters of the Benguela current off the southwest African coast. Size: About 18 inches tall and 7.5 lbs.
Spotworthy: These penguins typically sport a broad white stripe encircling a black cheek and throat and a black horseshoe-shaped stripe across the chest. They also have featherless pink areas around the eyes.
