Hello Delilah,

I thought you might enjoy these pictures I took at the Brisbane Aquarium. I went there with my husband and my grand daughter, Aurora. She loved the penguins. I hope this helps you learn about them.

From,
Mrs. M in Brisbane Australia

The little blue penguin is the smallest of all 18 species of penguins! With an average height of 16 inches and a weight of 2 pounds, little blue penguins are about 3 times shorter and 33 times lighter than their giant cousins, emperor penguins, who also happen to be the largest of all penguins.

Except for their white bellies, little blue penguins have a bluish gray feather outfit covering their heads, backs, and wings. Also known as "fairy penguins", "little penguins", or "blue penguins", little blue penguins live in New Zealand and southern Australia.
