Full beak

By rgg
Atlantic puffin Machis seal island Maine USA.
The puffin's bill is perfectly designed for catching and carrying a catch of fish. The bill has a layer of spines on the upper part of the beak. Using this and small spines on their tongues, a puffin can catch an hold fish while opening its bill again and again to catch more fish. They don't have to stop fishing until their bill is full!
