Amazing Pelican Pouch
January 1, 2014 2 Comments
Pelicans have incredible pouches. The expandable pouches are used to scoop up food, and can hold up to 3 gallons of water and fish! Brown pelicans are the only pelicans that are plunge divers. They drop from the air with a big splash, and then scoop up the stunned fish. We watched this funny brown pelican stretching at Sebastian Inlet State Park, Florida. In the process, we got a great look at its amazing pouch.
