King Penguins

The King is the second largest of the 17 species of Penguin - the largest is the Emperor Penguin.

King penguins are easily recognisable by their distinctive yellow markings.
A large penguin, our Kings weigh between 15-20 kgs [averaging 16 kgs] and are about 85-95cms tall! This is about the same as Kings in the wild. Each year the King penguins moult (lose all of their feathers at one time and grow a new set) to keep their coat perfectly waterproof.
