Create your own collection of adorable animals with this Emperor Penguin, made with great detail to resemble the real-life animal.
The Emperor Penguin from Schleich WILDLIFE is the largest and heaviest penguin species. It is also unique for living so far south in Antarctica.
Emperor Penguins don't build a nest, instead of brooding directly on the ice. After laying an egg, the female goes back to sea to hunt for fish, leaving the male to look after the egg. He places it on his feet and incubates it under his abdominal crease.
The Emperor Penguin from Schleich® WILDLIFE has yellow spots on its ears and black and white plumage that looks like a tuxedo. Figurines are modelled in the finest detail to help children learn while they play.
Fun Fact: When emperor penguins exit the water they jump in a high arc onto the ice.
