Galapagos Blue Footed Boobies

The Blue Footed Boobies mate by whichever male has the best dance and whoever has the brightest feet. They can dive in water a little as three feet deep, and they gather in the thousands. Their blue feet coloration genes get passed down through generations, so eventually all of the boobies feet are blue.
