A Home in the Sun
Original Photographic Print of African Penguins at Boulders Beach.
In False Bay, just around the corner from Simon’s Town, South Africa, lies Boulders Beach, a sheltered cove of soft white sand, massive granite boulders and being on the Indian Ocean side of the peninsula, the water is a touch warmer than the icy temperatures of Cape Town's Atlantic Ocean beaches.
A patch of bare skin above each eye helps them cope with high temperatures in South Africa. The hotter the penguin gets, the more blood flows to these areas, where it is cooled by the surrounding air, and keeps the bird cooler. Because of the increased blood flow, these bare patches get pinker as a penguin warms up.
Nature at it's finest.
