Penguins everywhere

Northern rockhopper penguin
Eudyptes moseleyi Mathews & Iredale, 1921
Spheniscidae; Sphenisciformes; Aves; Chordata
Whipsnade Wild Animal Park

I've just seen the mass of penguins in Darren's latest post at Tetrapod Zoology, and I thought I'd remind people of the series of posts I created in 2008 where I featured all of the world's extant penguin species with original illustrations. The links are here:

Emperor (Aptenodytes forsteri) and king (A. patagonicus) penguins
Adélie (Pygoscelis adeliae) and chinstrap (P. antarctica) penguins
Gentoo (P. papua) and yellow-eyed (Megadyptes antipodes) penguins
Northern (Eudyptes moseleyi) and southern (E. chrysolophus) rockhopper penguins
Erect-crested (E. sclateri) and Fiordland crested (E. pachyrhynchus) penguins
Macaroni (E. chrysolophus) and royal (E. schlegeli) penguins
Snares crested (E. robustus) and little blue (Eudyptula minor) penguins
Jackass (Spheniscus demersus) and Galapagos (S. mendiculus) penguins
Magellanic (S. magellanicus) and Humboldt (S. humboldti) penguins
