Royal albatross, Diomedea epomophora, AV076

Physical Description

Study skin of an albatross with white front and black wings. The body is in a straight line. The head is heavy and moves around due to lack of internal support in the neck, but typically rests so the beak is pointing perpendicularly toward the PR side of the body. The legs are folded up against the abdomen, and held in place by a length of string looped around the bird. The head is tilted so the beak is pointing up. Beak is tied closed with string.


Maximum dimensions (H x W x D): 260 x 890 x 380mm
