Gentoo penguins are known for their loud, trumpeting calls. Both gentoo parents take turns incubating their eggs. After hatching, chicks spend about one month in the nest before joining the other chicks in the colony. After 80-100 days, the chicks molt their fluffy coats and are ready for sea-going excursions.
