[National Geographic Wallpaper] King Penguin (임금펭귄)

South Georgia island, Falkland Islands
Maria Stenzel

Though covered in a coat of thick, soft, brown feathers, a juvenile king penguin must wait to enter the water until the age of ten months, when its first set of waterproof, adult feathers begins to grow in. Until then, chicks are entirely dependent on their parents for food.

King Penguins live on the subantarctic islands at the northern reaches of Antarctica, as well as Tierra del Fuego, the Falkland Islands, and other temperate islands of the region.
