Phillip Island penguins are small blue penguins, the scientific name is Eudyptula minor, the world's smallest penguins, and other common penguins, their feathers are blue. Little blue penguins only grow in Australia and New Zealand, usually only at night, gentle and timid, like to nest in the sand dunes near the coast, day and night out, go out to sea during the day to find food, wait for dark before returning to the nest. For thousands of years these lovely little guys have followed a fixed route back to their homes, because of the fear of lights scare these timid guys, Philip Island beach night will be light control, the length of more than a thousand meters of sea stalls only in the sightseeing area has a few light bulbs.
