Antarctica: Penguins Really Dig It

Subscribe
Even though several governments maintain permanent manned research stations in the world's second-largest continent, we all know who the frozen land really belongs to.

Antarctica's penguin population is massive and includes emperor penguins, Adélie penguins, southern rockhopper penguins, king penguins, chinstrap penguins and gentoo penguins.

Earlier this month, a new colony of about 1.5 million Adélie penguins was discovered on the Danger Islands near the continent, substantially increasing the known population of these knee-high creatures.
