Man, I can't even look at pelicans anymore. You all realize they eat other smaller birds too, right? Like they`ll seriously just swallow them whole.
I`m serious, if you don`t believe me go look that poo up. I remember when I first saw a video of one just up and eating a pigeon in a park I was like "holy poo, that is really sort of unsettling, but maybe it`s just a fluke...", but then I was watching animal planet the one time and there was a program that followed a bunch of pelicans as they flew to the nesting ground of a bunch of smaller birds and started just wandering around eating their young. You could see them swallow them whole and watch them struggle all the way down the pelican`s throat.
Then they flew back to their nests and regurgitated `partially digested chick` for their young to eat. It bothers me to even think about it, and I`m usually pretty unaffected by that kind of stuff...
