Boulders Beach, South Africa
The African penguin (Spheniscus demersus), also known as the Cape penguin or South African penguin, is a species of penguin confined to southern African waters. Like all extant penguins, it is flightless, with a streamlined body and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine habitat
This small, distinctive penguin is found on the rocky coasts of Southwestern Africa, in the countries of Namibia and South Africa. They feed exclusively on marine species, mainly fish and squid. Hunting involves venturing from shore, sometimes as far as nine miles off the coast, and swallowing food whole. After hatching, an African penguin chick will be fed by its parents for as long as three months.
