Snares crested penguin (1 o 2)

Snares crested penguin

When all is calm, crested penguins’ crests lie flat as seen here. When the penguins are excited, their crests behave in different ways according to the species: standing erect in a fan (erect-crested); sticking out sideways (rockhopper); or flicked out at the back (Snares and Fiordland crested penguins).
