Wandering albatross

Measuring from 2.51 to 3.7 m (8 ft 3 in to 12 ft 2 in), Wandering albatross (Diomedea exulans) has the largest wingspan of any bird.

Wandering albatross is also one of the most far ranging birds. Some individual wandering albatrosses are known to circumnavigate the Southern Ocean three times (covering more than 120,000 km or 75,000 miles) in one year.
