African penguins, classified Endangered, grow to 24–28 in. The pattern of black spots on their chests is unique for every penguin, like human fingerprints. The pink glands above their eyes are for thermoregulation; the hotter the penguin gets, the more blood is sent to these glands so it may be cooled by the surrounding air, thus making the glands pinker. Their distinctive black and white colouring is a vital form of camouflage – white for underwater predators looking upwards, and black for predators looking down onto the dark water.
