  Penguins don't live at the South Pole, and more polar myths debunked We're setting the record straight on which cold-dwelling creature lives where.With their vast, icy landscapes and long periods of darkness or daylight, the polar regions can appear pretty much the same. But they’re actually worlds apart.
