King Penguin Chick by Julien Beytrison: 'Oakum Boys' is the nickname for the brown juvenile King Penguins. (Picking oakum, a fiber such as hemp or jute obtained by unraveling old ropes was a job given in Victorian times to children and prisoners. The fiber was then tarred and used for caulking the seams of wooden ships.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakum #KIng_Penguin #Oakum_Boy
