Photo of the Day: Kissing Penguins

| Taken by Aracely | No Comments » | Photo of the Day

Punta Tombo is a peninsula into the Atlantic Ocean 110 km (68 mi) Argentina, where there is an important colony of Magellanic Penguins. The 3 km (1.9 mi) long, 600 m (1,969 ft) wide peninsula is covered with sand, clay and gravel. Between September and April, a large number of Magellanic penguins come to this site to incubate their eggs, and prepare their offspring for migration – the largest such colony in South America. Couples stand in front of their nests, protecting the eggs from birds and other predators, and occasionally one adult goes to the sea for food.
