Actinomycetaceae is the mist dominant family within the phylum Actinobacteria in king, little, and macaroni penguins but its abundance was relatively low in gentoo penguins. While Corynebacteriaceae and Propionibacteriaceae are the most dominant families in gentoo penguins.|

For gentoo and macaroni penguins, Ruminococcaceae is the dominant family within the phylum Firmicutes. In king penguins Clostridiales family XI is the dominant family, while in little penguins Lactobacilliaceae.|

In gentoo and macaroni penguins, Moraxellaceae dominates the phylum Proteobacteria. In king penguins Campylobacteriaceae is the most dominant family, while in little penguins, Enterobacteriaceae is the most dominant.|
