King penguins are amazing! Once paired, the parents will remain together for the 14 or so months it takes to raise a single chick. They work as a shift team – one parent staying at the colony with the egg/chick while the other goes on what can be an incredible journey to gather food. During the winter, the chicks are left alone and rely primarily on their fat reserves to survive. The parents undertake extended foraging trips, returning only rarely to feed the chick. Adult birds have been tracked making round trips that can last over 50 days and cover up to 1,800 km (1,100 miles)!
