The Chinstrap Penguin is a species of penguin that is found in the Antarctic. They are easily identifiable by the black and white markings on their body, as well as the black band that goes around their head from their beak to their ears which gives them their name.
Chinstrap Penguins are medium-sized penguins, standing at around 27 inches tall and weighing in at around 11 pounds. They have a very characteristic way of waddling when they walk, and are known for being some of the fastest swimming penguins.
These penguins breed between October and February, and the females lay two eggs. Both parents take turns incubating the eggs, and the chicks will fledge (leave the nest) after around 65 days.
