Producer Primary consumer Secondary consumer Tertiary consumers Moss Lichen Grass The scientific name for emperor penguins is Aptenodytes forsteri. Emperor penguins breed on ice. The males keep the eggs warm by placing the egg on their feet without touching the ice. While this is happening the mothers are hunting for food in the sea. Emperors are the largest species out of all penguins. They are almost 5 feet tall (45 inches). The prey for emperors eat photoplankton and other tiny organisms. Emperors live in Antartica. The climate in Antarctica is very cold. The penguins there can live at -76 degrees F because they huddle together for warmth. Sharks, leopard seals, and orcas eat emperor penguins. Researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are researching and recording sea ice. The climate in Antarctica is getting warmer and the ice is starting to melt. Tiny organisms that penguins eat live under the ice. When the ice goes so do the tiny organisms. Also New England scientists are working hard to help the penguins by removing the introduced species in Antarctica. Aquarists at the New England Aquarium are taking donations to help protect the emperor penguin. This is a map of Antarctica. This is a picture of Antarctica Antartica is very cold. Antartica has ice and animals such as seals, krill, fish, and emperor penguins. The current population estimate is 270,000 to 350,000 individuals. herbivore Carnivore carnivore autotroph The End!
