ALL ABOUT LITTLE BLUE PENGUINS
the little blue penguin is a very small species of penguins. They live in the
south australian tundra. The tundra is really ccccoooooooollllldddddddd
but luckily the penguins have a thin coat of hot feathers which keep them
warm even when it gets even colder in the winter. Boy would I not want to be
there in the winter.
M EET THE LITTLE BLUE
The tundra has a super cold climate. There are almost no trees compared to a
forest[see picture below]
There are lots of hiding animals that are in burrows. Some look for a cave like
the little blue penguin. There are many penguins that live here. Most look for
shelter in a rock but only if they can not find caves like the one here the
reason. This is good is because it is small that means little things can get in
and the little blue penguins are only 30 centimeters when fully grown and that
means no predators can get in this, so it makes the little blue penguins safe
from most big threats.

for a little blue penguin.
The little blue penguin is eaten by two things. They are leopard seals and
orcs/smaller toothed whales. Th e orca is at the top of the whole world web. it
is even known for EATING GREAT WHITE SHARKS!!!the little blue penguin eats fish,
krill, and squid.
Balances and Imbalances in the tundra
Red foxes are invading the tundra ecosystem. They eat so much that they control
most of the south australian tundra.The red foxes eat to much and nothing gets it
there are no natural predators [ there are not many natural predators but there are a
couple]. The tundra on the sea is getting warmer this makes the habitats not right
for the creatures that live there.We have destroyed their habitats and have been
making farmland and houses for villages and cities.

Some of the types of plants are fruit, wheat, and veggies that grow in the short summer
under trees and rocks.The baby little blue penguins live in the little caves that they try to
find while the adults fish for food and climb back to the cave to feed the baby’s after a
month. Then they go back fishing and they do this until the baby is six months or more
before it can go out on itself. Then the little baby makes other baby’s and so on forever
or as we thought now that carbon dioxide is rising there is less ICE which is h orrible
it is killing polar bears and thousands of other creatures on the ice and is affecting
temperature in the south australian tundra which is changing the temperatures and
affecting the world.
