Ever seen a Blue-footed boobie?


Tuesday, February 12, 2013


Male boobies impress their mates with a dance that involves stomping their striking blue feet. The dance is one part of a more elaborate ritual that starts with the male offering the female gifts such as stones or sticks (or beads, if itís Mardi Gras). The couple then struts around one another and the male spreads his wings and whistles.

    Wow! I didn't know there really WAS a thing as a "boobie" other than human "boobies" (aka "the girls" etc. or man-boobs, as the case may be....

The Smurf-colored feet are cute too!!

Thanks for sharing!!

    It's very similar to the way that humans wear makeup, put on perfume/cologne, go to the gym, and dance in front of each other to get attention. Gotta do something to set yourself apart from others! Now if only I could get a guy to buy me gifts... haha
