About Smiling Hugo- From Author Philip Schwartz
In honor of Father’s Day, we bring you some great Emperor Penguin facts from National Geographic children. Both female and male emperor penguins spend their entire lives in Antarctica. Their daily lives consist of breeding, raising their children, and eating. Once the female emperor penguin lays an egg, then the male penguin will take over and balance the baby egg on his feet and will cover it with his feathered skinned pouch. The father emperor penguins will continue balancing the egg for 65 days through very cold weather until the mother emperor penguin comes back after almost two months. A big thank you to all our Papa Penguins out there, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
