This is a great card. It came to me from the Ukraine. Now I am left to ponder what is the tie between penguins and that country. First, wild penguins are one found in the southern hemisphere. There is a Unkrainian, Alexei Ponikarovsky, who plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team. Author Andrey Kurkov wrote a book called Death and the Penguin after reading a story about the Kiev Zoo. Whatever the connection, this is a great card.
