The third animal of the week is the Atlantic Puffin. This animal is a seabird, with a beak that is made primarily for catching and eating squid, fish, and crustaceans. During breeding season, the puffin’s beak actually becomes very brightly colored. Because of the brightly colored beak and the way the bird looks, it’s commonly referred to as the “clown of the ocean” or the “sea rooster”. They can reach about 10-11 inches in length with a 19-25 inch wingspan. This bird is found pretty much anywhere on the Atlantic Ocean, ranging all the way up to the Arctic Circle. Due to hunting, climate change, and introduction of nonnative species to their habitats, these birds do have a conservation status, but it’s the least concerned status.
