A small flightless bird, blue in color, that lives on arctic shorelines.

Little penguins are small creatures found inhabiting arctic oceans, where they spawn in groups of 5-10 individuals. Only as big as a guineafowl, these tiny flightless birds are completely inoffensive, serving as little more than a distraction for a dwarf. They produce very few products when butcherered, making hunting them for food rather worthless, though they are arguably useful as target practice, at least.

Little penguins possess a pet value of 10, but unlike most animals, they are not trainable.

Some dwarves like little penguins for their small size, their coloration, their waddling gait and their way of flying through the water.

Admired for its small size.
