My Kelly Tarltons Trip

Finally the first of July came, I was so excited, because we were going to ‘KELLY TARLTONS Yay, time to have some fun. We walked through  the doors and started our journey about Antarctica.

At Kelly Tarltons the first thing we saw was some penguins called gentoo and king penguins. The lady that was guiding us said that there were 80 penguins. I was amazed. There were  so many .

The gentoo penguins had long toe nails and webbed feet colored orange. Webbed feet help them to swim. They swim in water -6`c.

Did you know that gentoo  penguins moult all the time?  In summer they get a new coat. This is only because there coats loses water proof and have to pluck out all their feathers
