These fascinating marine birds live in the tropical and subtropical islands of the Pacific Ocean, largely in the Galápagos Islands. They definitely have a foot thing! Their diet of small fish, like sardines, is rich in carotenoid pigments, which turn their feet a luminous blue. Carotenoids also boost the Booby's immune system so having really blue feet is an indication of good health and nourishment. This makes
blue feet extremely attractive to mates. The male Blue-Footed Boobies love to wave their feet around in a ritual mating dance "look at these puppies look how bluethey are."
I hope you enjoy this sweater and its very blue feet.
