Magellanic Penguin (Spheniscus magellanicus)

Scaled collection of drawings of Magellanic Penguin in front and side poses

The medium-sized Magellanic penguin (Spheniscus magellanicus) is highly migratory, commonly seen in most South American coasts, though some traces can be seen in Australia and New Zealand. It is named after the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. Males Magellanic penguins are larger than females, and both parents take part in raising young ones. Typically, Magellanic penguins have white abdomens and black backs, showing two unique black bands within the head and breast. However, juveniles only have one black band under their neck. In addition, juveniles have grey-blue backs and a botched pattern on their feet. Adults, on the other hand, have webbed feet.

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.
