These penguins are in the wild on the Falkland Islands. I laid on the ground to get a better angle of these guys. There is a rope laying on the ground around the colony. You are not able to pass the rope but the penguins can come over to you.

Another penguin egg at Tennessee Aquarium

By: Staff Report

Tennessee Aquarium workers today found another egg at their Penguins’ Rock exhibit.

The egg is in the nest of gentoo penguin couple Peep and Poncho, according to a news release.

The first birth at the aquarium occurred Thursday when an egg belonging to macaroni penguin couple Paulie and Chaos hatched. It is the first birth for the exhibit, and the first hatchling for Paulie and Chaos.

Penguin caretaker Amy Graves expects Peep to lay a second egg in the next few days, the release stated.

Ms. Graves got a good look at the macaroni baby this morning.

“It has slate-gray, downy feathers with a white belly and a white tip on the beak,” Ms. Graves said. “It’s precious.”

There are ~2500 breeding pairs at Sea Lion Island, plus one hot and lonely king penguin. I laid down on the ground for a minute, but although they were curious, none of them touched me.
