Species: Emperor Penguin | Location: West Antarctica, Antartic Peninsula
A pair of emperor penguins stand above their chick. Emperor penguins are unique in that after the mother lays her egg, the dad is the one who sits on the egg while the mother sets out to sea to feed for two months. They are some of the most dedicated animal dads out there!
