Galápagos penguins (Spheniscus mendiculus) live on the Galápagos Islands. Because these islands are at the equator, the waters are warm – not all penguins live in cold climates. They do not migrate.

Description[change | change source]

Galapagos penguins have two bands of brown feathers on their faces and their beaks are thin and slender.

Size[change | change source]

They weigh five pounds and are one and a half feet tall.[1]
