If Sesame Street was rebooted as a horror movie, the Shoebill Stork would be cast as Big Bird. The unblinking yellow eyes pierce the soul, the dagger-like beak pierces the body, and the machine gun call it makes is just unsettling. If you think we made this thing up because we were out of ideas, do a quick google search and you’ll see that the Shoebill Stork is not only real, but pretty scary.
The Shoebill’s silly name belies its prowess as a hunter. A full grown adult can grow up to 5 feet tall with a wingspan of 8 feet. They are excellent fliers, but when hunting they prefer an on the ground approach, patiently stalking their prey – which consists of fish, frogs, snakes, and even small crocodiles – and are known to stand motionless for long periods of time. At the opportune moment, they violently attack using their sharp-edged beak. Their methodical approach and physical domination results in a high kill rate.
There are a lot of bird coins out there already, but none quite like this one.
