I always assumed the world’s worst flier, Orville the Albatross, from Disney’s The Rescuers was just a klutz to add whimsy to the movie. But apparently, Albatrosses are actually bad fliers/landers (at least when they are learning to fly)! Bottom two GIF credit: biologizeable

bonus extra: they are also so huge and enormous they literally have to run fast to get enough speed to become airborne (just like a plane/in the movie)

This is what it looks like landing on Mars
