Emperor penguins are 60 to 90 pounds and 44 inches tall. They don't build a nest. They brood their eggs on the father's feet. A flap of skin goes over the egg to keep it warm. The mother goes out to sea to get food, and a surprise is waiting when she gets back---a baby penguin!

Emperor penguins eat krill and fish. It's enemies are killer whales, leopard seals, sharks and birds.
