Penguins near Cape Town

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by jsdawes on October 19, 2005

It was a surprise to me to find penguins in such a warm climate. But I learned that the water is not very warm, as the influence of the Indian Ocean does not overcome the cold Atlantic Ocean waters until quite a bit farther north up the coast. The penguins are called "Jackass" because they have a braying call.
