The Gentoo Penguin is distinguishable by the bright red beak and has the largest distribution of any penguin. They feed on cod, crustaceans and squid and often hunt in packs. The Gentoo Penguin is classed as near-threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species; populations in Antarctica are increasing at most sites, but are declining rapidly on sub-Arctic islands.
