After researching yet another database, I have found out much more about my research topic. Penguin behavior between males and females directly coincides with the mating process. Vocal and visual signals presented by the males allow the females to understand whether or not the male is fit for breeding, as well as personal protection. Some females will offer stones to the males in exchange for intercourse, which is extremely intriguing. It displays a need for affection, and a sort of trade between the male and female.
