1. Where do penguins live?

Entirely in the Southern Hemisphere, at least in the wild — in Antarctica and islands in the Southern Ocean and along the southern coastlines of Australia, South Africa and South America. We have a famous nightly "Penguin Parade" of little penguins coming home to roost along the beach on Phillip Island, very near to where I grew up in Australia! :)
