    Little Blue (Fairy) Penguins (Eudyptula minor) - the smallest species of penguin. They leave land at dawn under cover of darkness, spend the day at sea foraging in small groups, and return to land at dusk. Average 12-13 inches, 1 lb. The beta-keratin in their feathers is aligned into parallel fibers, like a row of hairs. The alignment and size of the fibers scatters the light and reflects the blue pigment range. Found in New Zealand and Australia.
