Even smaller figurines like this Albatross figurine does not escape PAPO's craftsmanship excellence, featuring the same quality and attention to detail in its sculpting and colouring.
Like all PAPO figurines, this Albatross is made from non-toxic plastic and is BPA and phthalate-free, making it a safe choice for play even with our younger ones.
SPECTACULAR ALBATROSS FACTS!
• An albatross aloft can be a spectacular sight - these feathered giants have the longest wingspan of any bird—up to 3.4m! Albatrosses use their formidable wingspans to ride the ocean winds and sometimes to glide for hours without rest or even a flap of their wings. They also float on the sea's surface, though the position makes them vulnerable to aquatic predators.
• Another bird that will make you go, 'Awwwwww'! When a young albatross reaches 6 to 10 years old, it will usually start looking for a significant other. Almost all couples stick together until one party dies, forming unions that can last 50 years or longer.
• Interestingly, many of these unions can sometimes be same-sex, due to the imbalance in sex ratio of albatrosses. 31% of the long-term albatross couples on Hawaii’s Oahu Island were revealed to be female-female partnerships, with males being significantly outnumbered. #AllLoveIsEqual, if you ask us. :)
