The Antarctic Petrel is a species of bird from Antarctica. It eats fish, squid, and krill, though it may occasionally attack and eat the chicks of Emperor Penguins. Its name arises from its habit of running on the water to take off, which reminded its discoverers of the story of St. Peter walking on water.
