  • The most notable aspect of African Penguin behavior is the loud donkey-like braying noise emitted during the ecstatic display.
  • Allopreening (preening each other) can commonly be observed in African penguins. Penguins cannot easily preen their own heads and necks and if on their own and use their feet to do so.
  • African Penguin's diet consists mainly of fish, such as pilchards, sardines and anchovies, and crustaceans.
  • Penguins may travel considerable distances to feed, up to 4 miles.
  • On average a Penguin will eat about 4-6 pounds of fish a day.
