Can we just take a minute to admire penguins? Actually, what I mean is can we take a minute to gush over how incredibly adorable they are! So much so that I suspect even the Grinch would melt at their sight. I mean, look at them. The flightless birds tread upon land and have swapped their lack of flying with adapted flippers. Wondering what that means? Flippers are what helps them in swimming up to 500 metres deep in the water!
Most penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere with only one species living north of the equator (We will get to that soon!). And, yes, while you and I were busy going "ooh" and "aah" over the cuties from Happy Feet, the reality is that there exist 18 species of penguins. And, if your dream is to see them in person, then look no further because today we're telling you the best possible options for you to see them with your own eyes! Don't worry, we are not sending you all the way to Antarctica for this.
