It all goes back to the male fascination of having someone swallow something larger than what one would expect...

Dude, Pelicans are my favorite animals, they have been ever since I was watching one of those "Amazing Animals"-type shows on Animal Planet and I saw a home video of a Pelican trying to eat a Seagull. The Seagull was still alive and flapping around and the Pelican was just holding it in it's huge whatever that thing is called. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen, and since that day Pelicans have been my favorite animals. This picture just adds to their awesomeness:

They were saying on the radio that the pigeon was still alive when it was in the pelican's stomach. How they knew that I have no idea.

Pelicans are cool....I think they can fly 8,000 miles non-stop.

prolly because he was still moving...

I have a resident great blue Heron that is interesting to watch with things like stingrays and flounders. It was dead calm, the river was mercurial and the only disturbance was coming from "Big Blue" as he was stalking schools of mullet. He nabbed a big one...I'll bet it went 12-13 inches and after fighting with it for awhile...it shook out of his grasp several times but he recaptured it, he finally swallowed it. After going through the regular routine of stretching and such that lets the fish move down into his stomach, he stood still... they often do this after a "big" swallow. Lo and behold, I saw ripples emanating from his motionless body...the mullet was thrashing around "inside" enough to create their own ripples.

I had a pelican break and attempt to steal my bracelet one time when I was putting bait fish in the live well on our boat. They're mean :lol:
