Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Erect-crested Penguin (Eudyptes sclateri) is a penguin from New Zealand. It breeds on the Bounty and Antipodes Islands.This is a medium-small, yellow-crested, black-and-white penguin, at 50-70 cm (20-28 in) and weighing 2.7-5.2 kg (5.9-11.5 lbs). It has bluish-black to jet black upperparts and white underparts, and a broad, bright yellow eyebrow-stripe which extends over the eye to form a short, erect crest. Its biology is poorly studied and only little information about the species has emerged in the past decades. Erect-crested Penguins nest in large colonies on rocky terrain. It presumably feeds on mainly krill and squid like other crested penguin species.show more
