Blue-Footed Boobies: Their Scandalous Sex Lives And the Secret Behind Their Blue Feet (Video)

Blue-footed boobies are pretty fascinating as far as bird species go. The birds are a marine species, only needing land for mating and raising rearing their young.

The birds can be found up and down the Pacific coast from California all the way down to Peru, including in the world famous Galapagos Islands.

The birds are known for their bright blue feet, which they incorporate into their elaborate mating rituals. The birds use the blue feet as an indicator of health and potency: bluer feet mean a better potential mate.

The birds just can’t resist a really blue pair of feet, and often engage in extra-marital affairs. However, they always return to their life partner at the end of the day.

Check out the blue-footed booby’s mating dance and learn about their strange sex lives in the video below:
