In my opinion, the Southern Royal Albatross is the greatest animal on this earth. It is the largest flying bird- with a twelve foot wing span- and can catch a light breeze in the air, lock it's wings like a switchblade and tear ass across the ocean at up 90 mph for hundreds of miles without flapping their wings once. They can live up to 60 years and will fly for thousands of miles just to deliver one meal to it's young. They're also the toughest bird on earth, living strictly near the Antarctic circle and rarely seeing land their entire life. They're tame as well. You can walk up to them and pet them like dogs. A friend of mine got the priviledge of seeing the Albatross in action in New Zealand. He said they stand almost as tall as us on land: "Your jaw is left hanging for hours. They are astonishing to see, like nothing you could imagine." Focus: What is your favourite animal? Why?
