From today's featured article
The Emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) is the world's largest species of penguin, and one of the world's largest birds. It may grow to 1.2m (4 ft) high and weigh up to 40kg (88lb).
Like all penguins, it is flightless but a good swimmer. It is confined to Antarctica, where its habitat is threatened by the melting of the ice cap, leading to fears that it will be extinct by 2100.
