A shoebill. The shoebill is a large, elusive, stalk-like bird with an almost prehistoric appearance, due to its oversized shoe-shaped beak. They are sometimes referred to as ‘Whalehead‘, for obvious reasons.— FierceWarriorNStilettos (@InactionNever) October 12, 2021
I LOVE HIM. He's at a zoo in Japan and has lots of videos on YouTube. She isn't his favorite keeper, that's why he's picking on her. When they bring his food they have to bow to him and he'll bow in return. Shoebills are utterly nasty in the nest but I really love them.— Jill R (@Baranduyn) October 12, 2021
