- Aptenodytes forsteri
Those down-turned beaks can be so expressive, by watching a penguin colony or just a small group of individuals, you can imagine a whole host of dramas and interactions that are going on. The reality is more likely that it's all in your own head.
I sometimes wonder from pictures like this whether some emperor penguins have eyes at all?
