Australian Pelican

More pelican facts for the weekend.

The beak of the Australian pelican is the largest of all birds. It’s so large and spacious, that it can hold from 9 to 13 liters of water.

When catching fish, they take huge amounts of water into the pouch. Then they move the head forward, pour out the water and swallow the fish. They eat up to 4 kg fish per day.
