Breeding[edit | edit source]

Space penguins are well known for their egg laying habits. When a mother space penguin is about to lay an egg, she will beach herself on a planet rich in iron, calcuim, and water. Unfortunatly for neopet civilizations, this often coincides with cities. Space penguins will devour the iron-rich skyscrapers that often dot the skyline of metropolises, as well as the people themselves, eating twice their body weight in a person or eyrie or cheetah alone, usually for the calcium contained within the vertabrate skeleton. The mother penguin will use her sharp beak to remove underground water and transportation pipelines and extract their contents, and will store them in her stomach for two weeks, at which point she will lay her egg. The young take 72 hours to hatch, and a flock will usually lay a total of 178 eggs, each six feet in diameter, and ten feet in length. The space penguin chicks are unable to hover, and remain in the care of their mother for six weeks. The mother will regurgitate her previously stored food into her chick's anus, providing it a source of nourishment until it is large enough to feed itself, which usually occours at five weeks, when the mother will begin to teach her chick to hover.
