Pebble Island, Falkland Islands

Pebble Island, Falkland Islands

An unusual sight awaits us at the edge of a rockhopper colony on Pebble Island, just off the north coast of West Falklands. It is a leucisitc rockhopper. Unlike the thousands of other penguins surrounding it, this one is a pale golden color with just a tinge of yellow in its eyebrows, the result of a lack of cells capable of making pigment.
