The amazing mating dance of the Galapagos albatross

The Amazing Mating Dance of the Galapagos Albatross

Phillip Nails was holidaying in the Galapagos Islands in June 2012 to celebrate his parents' 25th anniversary, when he came across an astounding sight. Amid fields of Galapagos Albatrosses, two emerged from the bushes and came within 25 feet of the tourists so they could show off their mating dance. The enthralling dance sees the large birds furiously clacking their beaks, advancing on each other, honking loudly and even locking jaws at points.
