King Penguin Crèche - The Biggest Day Care Facility on the Planet

Whether the feeling is one of relief or panic is very much up to the child or the parent, I guess, but you might imagine, then, how the average King Penguin parent might feel when they return to feed their chick. Yet it is all part of the King Penguin’s master plan for the survival of the next generation. The Ark in Space, our sibling site, has the story and lots of pictures of lots of king penguins.
