Where do African penguins live in the wild?
African penguins are found on the southwestern coast of Africa.
Why aren’t these penguins too hot in the Florida sun?
Busch Gardens’ colony of penguins are a temperate weather penguin from southern Africa where they thrive warmer air temperatures and enjoy water temperatures from 40 to 70 degrees.
Why are penguins black and white?
The black and white coloration is called countershading and helps to camouflage them from predators.
