Galapagos Penguins

Galapagos penguins are the smallest of the warm weather penguins and can be found only on the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador. And, as some party trivia, they are the only penguin species to cross into the Northern Hemisphere with small populations located on the north coast of Isabela Island, just miles north of the equator.
Size: About 19 inches tall and 6 lbs.
Spotworthy: The distinguishing features of the Galapagos penguins include a narrow white band extending from the eye to under the chin and a black band that runs in an upside-down horseshoe shape around their fronts. The bill is longer and more slender than other temperate-area birds and the main black band around their front is much thinner.
