African Penguin Chick. In 16 out of the 17 penguin species, the two parents will take turns holding their eggs between their legs for warmth in a nest. The one exception is the emperor penguin. The female of this species will place the egg on the male's feet to keep warm in his fat folds while she goes out and hunts for several weeks.
