Tell me more about a
trip to Antarctica!
Gentoos are a medium size penguin as penguins go,
but small for an Antarctic penguin. They are the
calmest and most gentle natured amongst a group that are
really rather pugnacious and not at all backwards in coming
forwards. Gentoos are the only Antarctic penguin I have
encountered that have not at some point tried to start a
fight with me.
