About the Humboldt Penguins

Humboldt penguins look very smart in their distinctive tuxedo-like black and white markings. These flightless birds each have a unique pattern of spots on their bellies, which they can be identified by - just like our fingerprints! Humboldt penguins are well-adapted to cold waters, with short waterproof feathers to keep them streamlined underwater.

Habitat and Distribution

Humboldt penguins are found off the coast of Chile and Peru, and are named after the cold Humboldt current of the region.

Family Information

They mate for life, and live together with their partners in huge colonies.
