企鹅宣传日

今天是企鹅宣传日,我们展示的照片是一群在福克兰群岛散步的王企鹅。王企鹅的体型在“企鹅界”中排名第二,仅次于它们的表亲——帝企鹅。王企鹅身穿“燕尾服”,让它们看起来如同绅士一般温文尔雅。更为重要的是,这是它们的伪装色。王企鹅潜入海洋寻找食物时,黑色的羽毛可以迷惑天空中的捕食者,同时雪白的腹部又可以迷惑海中的猎物。

王企鹅拥有超强的潜水能力,为了捕食美味的鱿鱼和灯笼鱼,它们可以潜入水下300多英尺,有些甚至可以达到1000英尺的深度!这些不会飞的鸟潜水时身姿优雅。但在陆地上,它们就不那么优雅了,走起路来摇摇晃晃,要么就是趴着圆滚滚的肚子四处滑动。"

'Come on, guys, this way!'. Penguin Awareness Day

We're celebrating Penguin Awareness Day on the Falkland Islands, taking a stroll with some king penguins. Kings are the second-largest penguin species, only outranked in stature by their emperor penguin cousins. And while the King's tuxedo coloring gives them a dash of the debonair, it also provides an important and more practical purpose: camouflage. When the birds dive deep into the ocean looking for food, their black feathers disguise the bird from predators above, while their white undersides do the reverse.

Kings are legendary for their diving prowess—in their quest for tasty squid and lanternfish, they can dive over 300 feet below the surface, and some have even been spotted at depths near 1,000 feet! Underwater these flightless birds are the epitome of grace. On land, however, they are not so graceful, and waddle or 'toboggan' on their bellies to get around.
