Click on the link to view the live African Penguin Web Cam at the Georgia Aquarium. Just when you thought television couldn’t get any cuter! And yes, Africa has penguins! African penguins are native to the southwestern coasts and islands of South Africa and Namibia, and these little waddling birds are just the type of uplifting entertainment the world needs today. Their small bodies only stand between 18-25 inches tall and are mottled with black and white splotches from head-to-toe (or beak-to-flipper, I guess).
