Product Description

History

Albatrosses have a special place in maritime folklore and superstition, with The Rime of the Ancient Mariner being their most famous depiction. It’s a common myth amongst sailors that hurting or killing an albatross ensures dangers or disaster on a voyage. Despite their symbolic image and popularity in nautical culture, giant albatrosses have been negatively affected by human activities, such as overfishing. If you decide to take home this awesome avian animal, keep in mind that it has a huge appetite!
