Macaroni Penguin

Collection of illustrations of the Macaroni Penguin in a range of postures viewed from the front, back and side

The Macaroni Penguin is one of the six species of crested penguin, closely related to the Royal Penguin.  The species can be found from the Sub Antarctic to the Antarctic Peninsula. Macaroni penguins consume more marine life annually than any other seabird species, with a diet that consists mostly of crustaceans, such as krill, and small fish. They are distinguished by their yellow crest and the sharp delineation of their white underparts to their black upperparts and face. Since the mid-1970s the macaroni penguin is classified as under a vulnerable conservation status.

The Macaroni Penguin has an average height range of 24”-27” (61-69 cm), weight of 7-14 lb (3.2-6.4 kg), and typical lifespan of 15-20 years.

Penguins are a species of flightless aquatic birds that live south of the equator with the exception of one species that lives on Galapagos Island. Having adapted for water instead of air, the penguin’s wings have evolved from wings to flippers; useful for propelling the penguin through the water.
