Hello world a pretty cool start to the day and it is an extreme creature day. This week we have the wandering albatross.

This bird has the longest wingspan of any bird, more then 3 metres, think the width of a bus. With such long wings this bird can fly like a plane, gliding for hours without flapping its wings once.

As an adult they weight around 7kg are about 135cm’s and live for 60+ years.


  1. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    One wonders about the age those large birds can reach. The other day I found out that the flamingo lives to be around 60 and here again.
    Is that why they call some people that survive medical complications ‘a tough bird’?!
