This exotic bird is one in our series of lively and lifelike plastic animal toys found in the Galapagos Islands. Its realistic shape and details will be enjoyed as part of a school project, diorama plastic animal collection, as a party favor or gift. Our plastic blue-footed booby measures 2-1/2 inches from beak to tail. The blue-footed booby (Sula nebouxii) is a long-winged seabird. Its name, booby, comes from the Spanish word bobo meaning "stupid one." This is because the blue-footed booby has a clumsy gait on land. The male blue-footed booby also does an unusual stomping dance when courting the female. The blue-footed booby can weigh up to three pounds and is often two feet long from beak to tail. They feed entirely on fish and can swim a good distance underwater to spear their prey. The blue-footed booby is found primarily around the Galapagos Islands and off the coast of Ecuador and Peru. They are numerous and fortunately are not endangered like many other animals in this region.
