Mascot Albatrosses have narrow and very long wings, which can exceed 3 meters breadth. Adaptation has allowed them to glide effortlessly, and to take off by opening the wings into the wind. The predominant color of the plumage of all albatrosses is black and white, with certain shades of dark gray. The birds feed primarily on squid. They catch their prey near the sea surface at night. Like other tubinares, albatrosses have a peak formed by bony plates. The nose has the form of two tubes, visible on both sides on top of the peak. Reproduction in these birds occurs very slowly. When they do lay an egg, a chick often does not form. However, adults live many years, compensating for the reduced youth population. Albatrosses breed for over 20 years with the same partner. A female 58 years old has been mentioned as still raising chicks. Some albatrosses can live up to 80 years.
