There are few places they live : South America coast and Chili. Animals build their nests on rocks but live mostly on ice and under water. Searching for food they can dive up to 50 metres deep. Chicks need food every day so their parents have to walk about 70 km to the sea and back in order to bring fish. One parent goes hunting, the other stays with a chick and warm it.
