Animal of the day – 3/04/2011 – The Atlantic Puffin

Atlantic Puffin

The animal of the day is the Atlantic Puffin. (Did you know: Puffins can dive up to 200 feet in the ocean! That’s deep enough for them to catch squid and crustaceans from the ocean floor!

Their main diet however is made up of herring and other small fish.

Beak full of herring!

They’re not just good swimmers, they can also fly surprisingly fast, reaching speeds of up to 55 miles per hour in the air!
