Which of the following has been cited as a cause for the deaths of the Penguin chicks from the world’s largest colony of Magellanic Penguins
Lack of food
Warm Ocean Currents
All of the above
Magellanics are medium-sized penguins standing about 15 inches tall and weighing about 10 pounds. Males of the species sound like braying donkeys when they vocalize. Among 17 species of penguins, 10 including Magellancis breeds are found in the region, where there is no snow, it is relatively dry and temperatures can be temperate. To protect the chicks, parents are too big to sit over and those are still too young to have grown waterproof feathers. Downy penguin chicks exposed to drenching rain can struggle and die in absence of the attention of their concerned parents. During extreme heat, chicks without waterproofing can’t take a dip in cooling waters as adults.
