Blue-footed boobies are seabirds that were extant during the ice ages into the present day.
Medium-sized seabirds, blue-footed boobies' most notable trait is their webbed, light blue feet, which are often used as paddles while swimming. Adept at flight, blue-footed boobies have mottled grey and white feathers and have long, horned beaks. At least one blue-footed booby, Silas, had a touch of red-and-white pigmentation atop his head.
Among the species of animals and birds affected by the shift of the continents was the blue-footed booby, which, prior to the shift of the continents, was more partial to reside in the south of what is presently France. One such blue-footed booby named Silas found a place in the piratical animal crew of a seafaring ape named Gutt, becoming Gutt's trusted scout.

Behind the Scenes
Silas, being the only depicted blue-footed booby in the series, is labeled as a petrel by Peter DeSève, sharing the horned beak of petrels, which blue-footed boobies do not have, instead having thin, grey beaks.
