    As a kid, I got a World Wildlife Fund-series plush king penguin, and I took it with me everywhere. Ever since, I've been on the king penguin's side. The black, gray and white coloration is more exotic than the white-black of the emperor -

    and where the emperor penguins yellow cheek-color kind of fades down into the black, the king penguin has a sharp contrasted, upwards turning, drop faced, deep orange mark, that I find a lot more interesting

    They are the second largest of all penguins, and closely related to the emperor, but - alas - almost always ignored in favor of the emperor, when it comes to docus and movies and other shows

    I love penguins so damn much. Here in the US at the Ripley's Aquarium you can go in a penguin enclosure and paint with them. 10/10 totally worth it.

    The ones I got to spend time with were African penguins. I believe they are endangered.

    large number of penguins inhabit Africa, Australia + New Zealand, or South America, since primarily they are oceanic, so long as it's southern hemisphere. While Africa proper may be hot, they'll only breed there, and spend the rest of their lives in frigid oceans

    Yeah, checking a bit now, and as I suspected, Antarctica is like... "final boss"-level habitat, most penguins stick to warmer climates further north, while only a handful of badass species actually go to Antarctica itself
