Giant petrel is a genus, from the family Procellariidae which consists of two species. They are the largest birds of this family. Both species are restricted to the Southern Hemisphere. Giant petrels are aggressive predators and scavengers. They are much darker and more mottled brown and have a more hunch-backed look. The petrels have a hooked bill called the maxillary unguis which can hold slippery food.
