An albatrosses couple produces one egg and take turns looking after it. The chicks may fly within tree to ten months and leave the land from five to ten years, untill they reach sexual maturity.

albatrosses mainly feed on squid or schooling fish, but are familiar to sailors because they follow ships with the hope to get some food from garbage.

Some albatross species are brutally hunted for feathers that were used in women's hats.
