The Magellanic Penguins are a close relative of the African Penguin (which more typically takes the name 'Jackass'). Chatwin claims that they are numerous in Patagonia and later talks of seeing 'millions. Black and white. Black and white,' but sadly they are under threat from a range of environmental issues, including a change in fish stock and oil spills from the rigs.
