The long-tailed Gentoo penguin (Pygoscelis papua) is a penguin species in the genus Pygoscelis. Gentoos breed on many sub-Antarctic islands. The main colonies are on the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Kerguelen Islands; smaller populations are found on Macquarie Island, Heard Islands, South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.
