Chinstrap Penguin facts: one of the only penguins with a white face | Animal Fact Files

Chinstrap penguins are some of the only penguin species with a white face. They have a cute little line of black across their chin giving them the appearance of wearing a helmet. These little birds live in Antarctica among other places and are the most populous of all the penguin species - they're also supposedly some of the most aggressive! Chinstraps make the nests out of pebbles. Babies are born during the warmest parts of the year (which are technically winter in the northern hemisphere). The chicks are raised in groups called a creche and they'll take to the water once they've grown enough to live on their own not returning to the breeding grounds for a few years.
