Black-footed Penguin

Black-footed Penguin

The black-footed, or African, penguin does not dwell on the ice like so many of its cousins. Instead, it lives in cold currents off the coast of South Africa. These noisy birds are also known as “jackass penguins” because of their shrill calls. They bray for mate recognition, when angry, or to say hello.
