Answer is Antarctic tundra biome for famous emperor and king penguins. Seals and penguins live here on completely ice covered land. Adelie and gentoo penguins are also living in antarctic. (All of antarctica is not tundra, most of the inland areas are better described as polar desert.http://polarsoils.blogspot.in/2016/08/what-biome-is-antarctica.html))


Of the 17 different species, the smaller ones are found in warmer coastal areas of Australia, tip of African continent, and along west coast of South American continent.

Galapagos penguins are the only one found in tropics, while there are many living in subtropical coasts and islands.


Please find out about different penguin species and their geographical distribution. They are always part of coastal ecosystem as they depend on ocean for food.
