Emperor Penguin

The Emperor Penguin stands three feet tall and weighs 100 pounds.
They feed at sea on squid and fish, and their most deadly enemy is the leopard seal.
The Emperor Penguin is most known for its march. In the autumn the penguins gather in thousands for their march.

After the female lays her egg, she leaves and goes back to the sea to feed. She leaves the male in charge of the egg. She will return when the egg hatches.
The parents will then take care of the chick together. When it is about 5 to 6 months old all the Emperor Penguins gather and they begin their march once more.
