Schlegel's Petrel

The species feeds mostly on squid, which comprises 87% of its diet in some studies; it will also feed on lanternfishes as they ascend to the surface at night, as well as on crustaceans.

The Schlegel's Petrel is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
