The Puffin Life

Puffin's are called "Prince of the Sky and Sea". This is because they can fly above and below water. This is a skill that helps them catch fish, which they eat a lot of.

To live in the zoo, you would need to make sure they have a cage big enough to fly around it and a spot for water so they can swim. You will also need to make sure you have big rocks because that is where they like to rest and make homes.

Why should you pick our animal?

We believe you should pick our nature beauty because it actually has some human like qualities- like mating for life. You can view our animal in doors and outdoors. You might even be able to go inside of the Puffin cage because they aren't dangerous! We believe that our animal would be the most entertaining!
