A trip to the zoo allowed me to take a photo of the awesome King Penguins.  It is the second largest penguin, and it is confused with the Emperor penguin.  King Penguin’s orange feathers on the sides of their head are colorful and bright. Their beaks are the longest of the whole family of penguins and clearly longer than the emperor’s beak.  They have black heads with bright orange spots on the sides. Their beaks are long and black with orange marks on the sides and a tip that is slightly curved downwards. The plumage of the nape and parts of their neck and upper part of their back is silver to white gradient.
