Poop! Many Humboldt penguin chicks spend the first three months of their life in a burrow dug into thick layers of dried guano (sea bird poop!). Humboldt penguins will also dig burrows in the ground or in caves and along cliffs. The burrow protects the chicks from predators and helps to control the temperature in changing conditions. ************ Funtivities ****************************** Activity: Build your own penguin burrow Use pillows, blankets, bed sheets and sofa cushions to build your own penguin burrow. Be creative with your materials: Bring out the clothespins, string, paper clips and duct tape. We want to see your burrow when it's finished, so share a photo on our Facebook page! Activity: Practice penguin camouflage Look around your house or outside and see if you can find ways to camouflage. Get a picture of your best camouflage moments in your environment and share them with us! 💕Humboldt penguins spend most of their time in the ocean water, where they need to keep an eye out for predators. Their black and white markings serve as camouflage to help them stay out of sight. When a predator is in the water below them and looks up toward the sun, a penguin's white belly blends in. When the predators are above the water's surface, its dark back helps it to hide in the dark ocean water.
