Beautiful Emperor Penguin Chick
Emperor penguin chicks are born on the feet of their parents. That’s where they crawl out of their eggs, which are kept off the ice by incubating adults, who cradle the eggs on their feet for two months. Here, a newborn chick sitting on its mother’s feet is getting a brief peek at the world before it gets covered again by a brood flap, which keeps eggs and chicks warm even under the extreme conditions emperors face during your reproduction cycle. If we can learn how to nurture our planet the way emperors take care of their offspring, we’ll all be better off.
