The Incredible Secretary Bird Can Kill with Single Kick

The secretary bird is certainly the kick boxing champion of the bird world.

This long legged bird stomps to death dangers like snakes with ease.

Watch this video and see the secretary bird kick hard at this decoy snake on camera.

If you were a snake, messing with a secretary bird might get you stomped to death. While many birds peck away at danger with sharp beaks, the secretary bird just kicks the heck out of them.

This amazing bird can kick with a force five times more than their body weight. This would be equivalent of a 200 pound person with a kick that is 1000 pounds of force. Now that is one super bird.

Research is being done to learn more about this mighty kick. It might be useful information in the building of prosthetic limbs in the near future.
