Gentoo penguins

Gentoo penguins on the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic.  They nest on ice-free locations and build their nests of roughly circular piles of stones which are jealously guarded and prized by the females.  The third largest of the penguin species, they are the fastest swimmers reaching speeds of 36kph.
