Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet" and "Endangered Edens."

The Penguin Quiz

Chinstrap Penguin

Marty’s photo of the day #1768: It’s “CC, HP: ESC Month,” featuring photos and excerpts from my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents.

Today’s photo is from Antarctica. When performing at colleges, to keep my show interactive, I test my audiences on their knowledge of penguin names. When I show this penguin, about half the time someone in the audience will correctly shout-out that it is a chinstrap penguin. Then I show an Adélie penguin and generally stump the entire audience.

Let’s see how you do: Tomorrow my photo of the day will be an Adélie penguin. Without cheating by Googling it, imagine what that penguin looks like and come back tomorrow to see if you were correct.
