Puffins according to the description by the Wikipedia are alcids species in the bird genus that have bright color beaks during the time or the seasons when they are breeding.

They usually feed while they dive in the waters.

They are of two species that are usually available in North Pacific Ocean, that are the horned puffins and the tufted puffins. Most of them, if not all of them are usually have black and white feathers in the back and front of their bodies respectively. They also have very large beaks. Many a time they usually shed off outside part of the bills in case they have already bred or after their breeding season. They are then left with dull and small beak. They also have short wings which are adapted for flying and swimming under the water. They are very swift when they fly in the oceans at a very high speed.

They feed on zooplankton and fish and their young ones are fed majorly on small fish. Their young ones feed frequently for several times within a day. They therefore have to get several small fish for their young ones.

Their main predator is human beings who hunt them so that they can be used as meat, for feathers and to provide eggs.

We can learn a lot of things from the character traits and physical qualities of puffins. This can be very insightful in teaching us and giving us a lot of information.

Puffin’s knowledge and wisdom include the following:

  • Understanding parental abandonment.
  • Lifetime mating.
  • Longevity.
  • Penguin of the North.
  • Childhood ability to thrive in darkness.

Those who have puffin as their animal totem usually understand parental abandonment. Puffins usually leave their young ones to dive to a faraway part of the ocean to get for them some small fish food. This teaches us the feeling that a child has when they are abandoned by the parent. We also learn the relationship of a child and a parent and its impact on us. Children who have good relationships with their children tend to grow up well and courageous as compared to those who are occasionally abandoned by the parents. Most parents today tend to focus on their career and they neglect their responsibility as parents to their children. They have little time for their family.

If you have the puffin power, you will want to have a lifetime partner or mate just as the puffin that encourages lifetime mating. Partners are very important not only for procreation but also for companionship. Those who don’t have partners tend to live a lonely life.

Those with a puffin guide tend to live for a very long time. Their life is well-lived and enjoyed because they have their partners for companion and their children that they work hard to provide for. They, therefore, live for a long period of time.

Puffins are also known to be the penguin of the North because they majorly occupy the Northern part of the hemisphere. We should be identified by our background and where we come from.
