Chinstrap Penguins are cute little black-and-white birds that live in huge colonies in Antarctica and nearby islands. They are named for the black stripe that runs under the chin which resembles a helmet strap. Chinstrap Penguins are one of the most common species of penguin found in the world, with a population estimated at over 8 million birds.
