What are some other adaptations that allow the puffin to load up on so many fish? That fleshy 'rosette' at the base of the bill lets it open wider and stash a lot more in there.⠀

The bird is usually most vulnerable out in the open and it wants to minimize exposure to predators by making more efficient trips back to the burrow.⠀

Plenty of you have asked how it is that the puffins can stuff their mouths so full of fish without losing some. Well - the bird has several adaptations that help - and one is the barbs in its mouth. They allow them to lock in the fish they have caught as they keep going for more.⠀
