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.
