With wings, yet flightless;
diving dauntlessly into the raging and rambling sea, 
this creature is a sleek black-and-white fish killer.

This is a King Penguin, living with its family and fellow penguins in the ˇ§Penguin Cityˇ¨, a vast colony of hundreds of thousands of penguins, together with hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals, and elephant seals on the island of South Georgia near Antarctica. This is a place surrounded by steep mountain ranges and windblown icy plains.

A new Omnimax film ˇ§Penguinsˇ¨, launching in March 2014, follows a young male King Penguin for more than a year of its perilous journey - how it forages along the coast despite predatorsˇ¦ stalking, finds an adoring mate and raises its chick. Throughout the time, audience will witness how this pair of penguins hatch their egg and for that chick to grow up. In this 38-minute film, the penguin made its best endeavour to nurture and protect its offspring against harsh weather and fierce predators. Perhaps you will be impressed by the penguin coupleˇ¦s remarkable teamwork: as one adult guards the chick, the other goes on fishing trips spanning hundreds of kilometres.

OMNIMAX Show "Penguins" Trailer


ˇ@

South Georgia, an island which lies to the south of Atlantic Ocean, is the main breeding ground for King Penguins. Each spring, hundreds of thousands of penguins gather here to nurture their offspring.

ˇ@

Apart from King Penguins, other sea animals which need to breed on land (including elephant seals) also dwell here.

ˇ@

A female penguin will only lay one egg each time. The couple will take turns to hatch the egg and forage in the sea. After about 55 days, the chick will hatch out.

ˇ@

The chick is under parental care for 16 months before it becomes a grown-up. Then it can leave its parents and head for the sea for foraging trips alone.

ˇ@

While the brown fluffy coats on little penguins can keep them warm, they are not watertight. As they cannot follow their parents to the cold deep sea for foraging, they simply stay on the shore and wait to be fed upon their return.

ˇ@

ˇ@

Giant Petrels, one of the predators of King Penguins, will attack and prey on chicks.
