The average weight of the King penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) is similar or just slightly higher than that of the largest living flying birds – the Great bustard and the Kori bustard. They stands at 70 to 100 cm (28 to 39 in) tall and weighs from 9.3 to 18 kg (21 to 40 lb). Males are slightly larger than females. It is the second largest species of penguin. King penguins breed on the subantarctic islands at the northern reaches of Antarctica, South Georgia, and other temperate islands of the region. Photo: wikipedia
