Their new home is Egypt's makeshift, corporate version of the Artic located at the Mall of Egypt. The penguins are the Gentoo and Chinstrap species, two of the largest penguin types worldwide.

There are only about half a million Gentoo penguins in the world, with lengths that commonly range between 0.6 to 0.76 meter, making them the third-largest penguins after two giant species. A long-tailed Gentoo penguin weighs between 5.5 to 6.5 kilograms approximately, with a lifespan that can exceed 20 years. Meanwhile, the Chinstrap or bearded penguins are the fifth-largest penguin in size out of typically 17 species of penguins. There are about 7.5 million Chinstraps in the world inhabiting parts of the Antarctic Ocean and Southern Pacific.
