Why do we love these African Penguins 12 oz. enamel mugs? Enamel mugs are just nostalgic. They look awesome and feel great. They're perfect for little hands because they're mega durable. If you're camping (in a park or your backyard) did you know enamelware can go right on the fire? We love these mugs and hope you do too. Start your own collection or share as a gift. White-rimmed, enamel coated stainless steel.

Not every penguin lives in the snow and ice! African Penguins (Spheniscus demersus) make their home along the coast of South Africa - a climate similar to central California. Agile and graceful under water, they ‘fly’ through the water fast enough to chase down schools of fish. Threats facing African penguins include guano collecting, oil spills, competition with commercial fishing, egg collecting and loss of habitat. African penguins are listed as ‘vulnerable’ by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
