Emperor penguin males will incubate their eggs for two months in the winter without eating while the females are at sea. During that time, they live off their fat reserves and may lose half their body weight. When the females return shortly after the chicks hatch, they switch parental duties and the females fast. Wouldn't it be amazing if human couples had this kind of dedication to each other?

King Penguin Chick by Julien Beytrison: 'Oakum Boys' is the nickname for the brown juvenile King Penguins. (Picking oakum, a fiber such as hemp or jute obtained by unraveling old ropes was a job given in Victorian times to children and prisoners. The fiber was then tarred and used for caulking the seams of wooden ships.) en.wikipedia.org/... #KIng_Penguin #Oakum_Boy
