Information about the Southern Rockhopper Penguin:
Rockhopper Penguins are small-medium sized aquatic birds, notable for their distinctive cluster of feathers on their heads, which starts in a yellow streak over the eyes, and carry to the back of the head ending in an impressive crest. These flightless birds grow to about 18-23 inches tall (45-58 cm) and about 5-8 pounds (2-3 kg). They are found in the Falkland Islands region. There are several major colonies with an estimated three million breeding pairs. As their name implies, they are known for their ability to hop from rock to rock when going back and forth from the ocean. Rockhoppers feed mostly on crustaceans, such as krill. These birds live in large, noisy colonies and are very feisty, and will attack anything that comes near their nests.
