No. Disappointing, hmm? They look a lot alike. They live in the same kind of climate. They live in the water. But the National Wildlife Association says they're not closely related in Poles Apart: Same Play, Different Actors:
"According to DNA tests . . . alcids [puffins] and penguins are not closely related. Though their harsh environments have shaped these birds into creatures with similar habits, they remain poles apart."
