In Little Penguins, two young brothers compete with each other in everything they do. But they take it one step too far and finally have to admit they need help. Little penguins are seabirds that cannot fly. They are the smallest of all penguins at about 40 cm tall and 1 kg in weight. Little penguins live and breed on the south coast of the Australian mainland, on the Tasmanian coastline, and on several islands south of Australia. Little penguins eat fish, squid and krill, and can be seen at dusk waddling up the beach to their burrows, often in sand dunes, where they build their nests.
