All Black King Penguin Discovered

Andrew Evans from National Geographic was out photographing King penguins on the island of South Georgia off Antarctica when he spotted a rare specimem, an all-black King penguin. This penguin has some sort of melanism that makes its feathers dark/black. As you can see from the picture it does not have any white feathers on its front and its yellow plumage on its head is very darkened. Check out the articles on this astonishing wonder linked below. Wow, that’s all I can really say.
