Lungfish for Lunch: The Shoebill Stork is on the Hunt [VIDEO]

The shoebill stork can slurp lungfish and they don’t even need a straw. 

A shoebill can eat frogs and baby crocodiles, but it craves its old enemy, the lungfish, most of all. If we could snatch a cheeseburger this easily, we might stop ordering take-out.

You won’t believe the speed that this shoebill hunts with.

 

The shoebill stork lives in the Great Lakes region of Africa. This cross between a heron, a stork, and an eagle, metaphorically speaking, can eat its weight in fish and amphibians.

Once the shoebill is finished, maybe we can get him to a beauty parlor for a makeover.
