What do you know… there is a specific scientific name for Crosby

This was brought to my attention by a Caps fan over at A View from the Cheap Seats. Needless to say I had to bring this up here too. Loooook, I found out where Crosby fits in this whole species thing:

From Wikipedia.

The genus Eudyptula (“good little diver”) contains two species of penguin. It is found in southern Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand and the Chatham Islands.

Eudyptula minor is commonly known as the Little Penguin, Little Blue Penguin, or Fairy Penguin. In the language of the Māori people of New Zealand, Little Blue Penguins are known as kororaa [hey, that’s almost Crosby!].

It’s also the smallest species of penguins. Not that Puffy is overly short or anything…

Yes, if you look at the article that penguin actually exists. I’m probably the only one who finds this beyond funny…..
