Then there is a sperm whale, a sperm whale is a toothed whale it pretty much eats everything except for the killer whale. It gets eaten by the killer whales. An albatros has a wing span
of 3m Emperor penguins are the largest penguin specie, standing about 115cm tall. Depending on the stage of their breeding cycle they weigh from 23 to 40 kilograms. There are so many different types of seals and a weddell seal is one of them there are about 800,000 individual weddell seal in Antarctica A baby bird is heavier than their parents
whales feed in summer and migrate north in winter Food Chain All the quarternary animals
eat the tertiary animals,
the secondary animals gets eaten by the tertiary and the secondary animals feed
on the primary animals.The producers which are phytoplankton keeps all these animals alive by being food for one so the others can feed on other animals.
The food chain is made so that
every animal dies by becoming food
for other animals. Adelie penguins are 46 to 75cm tall and can weigh up to 3.9 to 5.8 average.Male and female
adelie penguins are similar and are very different to tell apart. Transport Early explorers travelled using skis, snow shoes and sleds pulled by dogs.
