✨African Penguin✨(15x29 mm)
.
🐧 The African penguin's genus name Spheniscus refers to its wedge-shaped body, whilst the species name (demersus) is Latin for sinks or plunges. Otherwise referred to as the Jackass Penguin because its calls sound similar to a donkey, the correct name is 'African Penguin'.
🥚 The African penguin is endemic to the coastal areas of Southern Africa and is the only species of penguin that breeds in Africa.
🐟 They mainly eat fish (anchovies, pilchards, sardines, mackerel, and herrings) but they have been known to also eat squid and crustaceans.
🎣 They have been recorded diving to a depth of 130 m, but normally hunt at around 30 m.
🐣 They reach sexual maturity at 4-years-old and lay one or two eggs at a time. The incubation period is around 40 days.
📍 The best place to view African Penguins from the mainland is Boulders Beach, Cape Town. ©discoverafrica.com
.
This original miniature painting (and prints) is already available at my Etsy shop. Link in bio ☝️😊
