- Melanerpes uropygialis
The Gentoo Penguin is a species of penguin that lives around the Antarctic. Their preferred habitat is a rocky substrate, rather than ice- or snow-covered landscape.
Awkward on land, Gentoo Penguins swim gracefully in water and maintain a diet mainly consisting of krill and small fish. They breed communally in groups of up to a few hundred pairs.
