With a height of over 4 feet, it’s no surprise that people think this other bird is just a mechanical prop.

Deep in the tropical swamps of East Africa, you’ll find these hoof-billed storks in their swampy homes, perched on the water’s edge for hours, waiting for the right moment to catch their favorite fish.

They are strangely prehistoric and despite their friendly expression, they are known to hunt baby crocodiles and giant monitor lizards as a snack. They stay still for long periods of time each day, just be patient until the prey arrives.

For the most part, shoe throwers are quiet, only making noise when they quickly strike their beaks together to greet another bird or call for their young.
