One of the more vibrantly-colored species of bird, blue-footed boobies not only have their obviously blue feet, but a slightly darker blue face along with white body plumage, brown wings, and a speckled gray neck. This figurine has been hand-painted to look as realistic as possible. Fun facts about the bird: It’s no mystery as to how the blue-footed booby got its name! Male blue-footed boobies use their uniquely-colored feet to attract a mate, and will dance and strut in front of females in order to show them off. The brighter the shade of blue, the better!
