Even people who don't like birds love penguins. They're cute. They remind us of people we know. They also have mating and parenting behaviors we wish for our better selves.

All 18 different species of penguins are native only to the southern hemisphere. If you've spotted one up north, you've been at a zoo or aquarium.
