The Penguins’ Debut
Waddle, waddle. Slip and slide. Dive down deep. Catch some fish and swim away happy. Aahh! The life of a penguin. Let’s explore the differences and the similarities between two different types of fascinating birds.
Size, diet, and location are three ways that the macaroni penguin and the king penguin are different. The macaroni penguin eats crustaceans and krill. On the contrary, the king penguin eats mainly fish and some squid. Another way these two precious birds are different is their size. A king penguin is about 3 feet tall and about 35 pounds. However, the macaroni penguin is about 2 feet tall and about 14 pounds. Additionally, their appearance is different. The smaller macaroni penguin has yellow and black feathers sticking out of the side of their heads, unlike the larger king penguin that has orange spots near their ears and on their necks.
