Resource Description
KING PENGUIN EGG REPLICA. King penguins form colonies that range in size from less than 30 birds to thousands of birds. The colonies occupy beaches, and valleys and moraines free of snow and ice, prefering level ground near the sea. At any one time chicks of various ages are present in the colonies due to the long breeding season. Eggs are laid from November to April. Both parents share incubation of the egg and brooding of the chick, which takes approximately 15 weeks. King penguins have no nests and their eggs are incubated on the adults' feet. Chicks are fully fledged after nine months. This ceramic egg replica is individually molded and hand-painted by a California artisan to resemble the egg as it would be found in nature. Since they are created one at a time, there is some variation among the eggs, just as in eggs from different regions or even within the same clutch of a single species. All external measurements are precise - these replicas are regularly used by museums in their displays (to avoid having real eggs damaged or subjected to fading from light). Perfect hands-on resource for classrooms, nature centers, museum displays or home egg collections. All eggs come with a clear acrylic display cylinder sized to fit the egg. #EGG-14042.
