The crested auklet attracts mates by smelling like tangerines

The crested auklet enjoys a very unique way of attracting mates.

Already looking like a bassist of a punk band (check the nose hair clip), the bird also smells like tangerines.

The seabird’s plumage emits the citrus aroma in its mating process to draw more attention from the crowd.

Crested auklets mainly live in the Northern Pacific and Bering Sea.
