A tiny little Blue Penguin, the smallest of the penguin species throughout the world, wanders around his habitat at the Auckland Zoo on the North Island of New Zealand. The Blue Penguin is also referred to as Eudyptula minor as this is the proper scientific name given to this bird which will be approximately one kilogram when fully grown. Shades of blue highlight their back and flippers, while white adorns their underside protecting them from any predators in the water.
