Caption: Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) specimen collected during Scott's British Antarctic Expedition 1910-1913 (also known as the Terra Nova expedition) by expedition surgeon Murray Levick. This Adelie penguin has a mutation; its feathers have reduced pigment and would have been bleached by sunlight. They can become almost white. Levick conducted one of the earliest detailed studies of Adeliee penguins. For three months, he observed the behaviour of the penguins during their breeding season. It was the first study of its kind. This penguin from Cape Adare was collected and prepared by Murray Levick in 1911.
