Why do polar bears not eat penguins? Because they can’t get the wrappers off?
The prosaic answer, of course, is that they live at opposite ends of the world, polar bears in the Arctic and penguins in the Antarctic.
Best check for yourself though…

Ppppick up a penguin
If you want to see those penguins in their natural environment, and the nearest I’ve got is Busch Gardens https://buschgardens.com/tampa/ and Aaawlando… Orlando, the rollercoaster capital with Attraction Tickets https://www.attractiontickets.com/en
Then John Galligan Cruises are the people to go with. See https://www.jgt.ie/cruises/.
And remember to ask for your bandage to help you negotiate the sea sickness around Drake’s Passage.
See, I was listening that night in Dublin, John.
And seeing that colony of penguins on the ice will be worth it.
