Take a break from your work day and look at some cute penguins

It’s Thursday. You may be stressing out about work, what to cook for dinner or gearing up for the long holiday weekend ahead.

While there is nothing that can save you from the daunting tasks of real-life, we have a video of little penguins that could help distract you.

Little penguins, also known as blue penguins, little blue penguins or fairy penguins, are named for their small size and bluish hue, according to the YouTube video. They grow to up about 13 inches tall and weigh only 2 to 3 pounds at their heaviest.

The species is native to coastal southern Australia and New Zealand and are the smallest of all the 18 species of penguins.

The Bronx Zoo is one of three places nationwide to house these animals, which came from the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

So take a minute or two, kick back and watch this video of the little penguin exhibit at New York’s Bronx Zoo to help take your mind off any real-life worries.
