Penguins are social creatures, often feeding, swimming and nesting in groups. Most penguin species mate for life, and each penguin has a distinct call which allows them to find both their mate and their chicks, even in groups of a thousand or more birds.
During the courting period male penguins search long and hard to find the smoothest and prettiest rock to give to the female penguin they desire as a mate. When they have selected the ideal rock, they then present it to their intended partner. If the female is satisfied and accepts the male penguin and his offering she will put the gift in her nest as a symbol of her approval of the match.
