What are the key characteristics of Albatross animal?

Sometimes we think we saw a seagull when in fact we could see an albatross in the dream. I will quickly give you some facts so you can decide if you could see this bird. An albatross has a large softball size head and its bills are around 10 centimeters long. They feed mostly on quids with most of them having soft feather which enables them to remain warm, especially when the temperatures are low down. The air sacs in their lungs act as a bellows filling, then later on deflating in order to maximize oxygen intake. They live for about 60 years. And for them to mate, they wait until they mature, at around 12 years and lay only one egg per year. They have special salt-excreting glands that allow them to drink salt water and highly developed olfactory senses, which enables them to track down prey.

They are built like gliders with their unfurled wings locked into place by a tendon, which run between the shoulder and elbow joint. Internal struts reinforce light, hollow bones with powerful muscles which account for the lowest percentage of their body weight than what is in other birds. They are not able to swim or dive deep underwater the way the penguins and other seabirds do. They pluck squid and fish that swim near the surface of the water. They stay in water most of the time because it seems that it has only one chick and thus limited hunting ability and patchy supply of food.
