The Chinstrap Penguin (Pygoscelis antarcticus) is a species of penguin which inhabits a variety of islands and shores in the Southern Pacific and Antarctic Oceans. Its name comes from a narrow black band under its head which makes it appear as if it were a 'strap' holding on a black helmet, making it one of the most easily identified types of penguin. These little penguins are only about 28 in (71 cm) tall and weigh about 10 lb (5 kg). Chinstraps may be small, but they are the boldest penguins of all!
