Amazing pelicans
  • Pelicans are famous for the elastic pouches in their throats.

  • They travel in groups and hunt fish.

  • When they find their prey, the pelicans scoop the fish into the elastic sacs underneath their bills and swallow them at one go.

  • Before swallowing, they squeeze the water out the side of their bills and gulp the fish down.

  • There are eight living species of pelicans in the world.

  • They have wings as large as 10 feet and can fly to heights of 10,000 feet.

  • Their bills and pouches can change to colours like bright pink, yellow or blue.
