Penguins in Africa?

Penguins conjure up visions of the frozen Antarctic with icy cliffs and subzero bitter weather. There is a species of penguin that lives along the southwest rocky coast of the African continent simply called the African Penguin. Like its Antarctic cousins, the African penguin nests in colonies numbering thousands of birds where it nests in the shelter of burrows and crevices. These small penguins feast on anchovies, sardines and squid in the cold waters off the African coast. These are one of the most endangered penguins having lost 60% of their population in the last 30 years.
