Macaroni penguin

If you liked the rockhopper penguin, you will love the Macaroni penguin.

The “Macaroni” is slightly bigger, supposed to be able to breed with rockhopper penguins, much rarer, but quite impressive. At first, you’d say this is the same animal. But side-by-side, you will quickly noticed the deep yellow of the longer eyebrows of the Macaroni penguin, and its thicker bill.
