Product description

80 page flicker book, telling the story of gentoo penguin courtship and parenthood.

This flicker book tells the story of the courtship and family of the gentoo penguin. A male will hunt through piles of rocks, looking for what he considers to be the perfect specimen. Once he has found it, he presents it to his intended and if she approves their relationship is cemented. So much like humans a rock is involved, just in the gentoo's case it is a pebble rather than a diamond. Both parents share incubation of the egg and rear the resulting chick together, until it is time for it to take off on its own.
