More information:

Moulting African, Black-footed or Jackass Penguins, Spheniscus demersus, Spheniscidae. Boulders Bay, Cape Peninsular, Western Cape Province, South Africa. The African Penguin (Spheniscus demersus), also known as the Black-footed Penguin, is found on the south-western coast of Africa, living in colonies on 24 islands between Namibia and Algoa Bay, near Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Because of their donkey-like braying call they were previously named Jackass Penguins. Since several species of South American penguins produce the same sound, the African species has been renamed African Penguin, as it is the only penguin species that breeds in Africa.
