19. Asian. I write and we read. Duncing fool on the wooden chum bucket owned by a divine entity.

Today, I have another bird that seems to come from Jim Henson’s brain. This one seems to be more from the Creature Shop than the Muppet workshop.
Shoebills get their name from their beaks’ resemblance to certain footwear associated with 19th century Dutch Farmers, and I think the comparison holds up in terms of looks. The comparison breaks down in terms of use: clogs are not typically used for stabbing and crushing small prey items in African wetlands.
I really need to learn how to embed videos from ARKive, because there is an amazing video of a Shoebill hunting Lungfish that really looks like the Lungfish version of Godzilla. Watch it, you won’t be disappointed.
