Albatross Chick Regurgitating a Bolus of Plastic Trash

4y ago


Before leaving the nest, albatross chicks regurgitate a bolus, a mass or pile of the indigestible material they have eaten in the four months. A bolus is a record of the chicks diet. They contain hard parts from squid, seeds, wood, feathers, rocks, and increasingly human trash.
