Day 29 - Penguin by Dontknowwhattodraw94 Day 29 - Penguin by Dontknowwhattodraw94
"Draw a penguin."

The little penguin (Eudyptula minor) is the smallest penguin species. With a height of only 33 cm (13 inch) and length of 47 cm (17 inch) they are quite cute little fellas.
They can be found on the southern coasts of Australia and New Zeeland.

I love these guys! I'm pretty sure they almost went extinct due to foxes crossing over from the mainland, until this guy and his dogs helped defend the Penguins from invasive predators. (One of the few times man and dog helped prevent extinction instead of vice-versa)

Yes, foxes and feral cats are apparently one of the reasons they declined, also a cull in Tasmania.

Huh, what was the reason for the cull in Tasmania?

It happened in 1930. It was thought they competed with muttonbirds who were hunted for food.

Back then animals were treated as objects by white men. Real shame.

My sister loves penguins, and so do I!
Then again, I don't think there are a lot of people who don't like penguins--as my mom has put it, "How heartless do you have to be to hate penguins?"

Those birds are so adorable. I hope they don't start to decline like other species of penguins had been lately.

Their numbers have already dwindled down quite a lot, says Wikipedia...
