Did you know that emperor penguins take turns caring for their young? The female lays a single egg and returns to the sea to feed, while the male incubates the egg for over two months. Later parents alternate caring for the chick and foraging for food. Beautifully mouth blown in glass, our emperor penguins ornament depicts an adult standing in the snow with an adorable chick at its feet. Shimmering with hand painted glazes of white, black, orange, and yellow and eye-catching glitter accents, this unique "sea"-sonal keepsake makes a great gift for your aquatic animal lover! Skillfully crafted in Poland, keepsake measures 4¼" tall.
