The Banded penguins sure do. These penguins have never lived in the snow; some can even be considered tropical birds!
Banded penguins live in the temperate waters off the coasts of South Africa, South America, and the Galapagos Islands.
There are four types:
- Humboldt penguins
- Magellanic penguins
- African penguins
- Galapagos penguins
And there's one sure way of identifying them from all other penguins:
1IK*: A single or double band of black across the chest!
So next time you see a penguin, don't just assume it's from the Antarctic. And if you see a band across the chest? Well, its home might be warmer than yours!
