father Emperor penguin（皇企鹅）
withstands the Antarctic cold for 60 days or more to protect his eggs, which he
keeps on his feet, covered with a feathered flap. During this entire time he
doesn't eat a thing. Most father penguins lose about 25 pounds while they wait
for their babies to hatch. Afterward, they feed the chicks （刚出生的小企鹅） a special liquid from their
throats. When the mother penguins return to care for the young, the fathers go
to sea to eat and rest.
