1 Did you know that not all penguins live in very cold places like Antarctica? Well, out of the 17-20 different penguin species, there are a handful of them that stay in warm places. For example, the Humboldt penguin (also known as the Peruvian penguin), the Magellanic penguin, the African penguin (also known as the Jackass penguin), and the Galapagos penguin all have their homes in places free of snow and ice.
2 The Galapagos penguin is the most daring. It lives on tropical islands around the equator. All penguin species are only found in the Southern Hemisphere. The Galapagos penguin is the only one that lives near the equator. It is quite a wonder how the Galapagos penguin can survive a hot and humid climate!
