Humboldt Penguin

The Humboldt penguin lives along the coasts of Chile and Peru in the southeastern Pacific Ocean.
Humboldt penguins feed primarily on fish, especially anchovies, herring and smelt.

This medium-sized penguin grows to be about 26 to 28 inches long and weighs about 10.4 pounds. It has blackish-gray upperparts, white underparts, a black breast band, and a black head with white stripes running from the eyes around the ear-coverts to join beneath the chin. The bill is mostly black, but light-pink at its base. Juveniles have dark heads and no breast band.
