Pelican And His True Enemy

Pelican And His True Enemy

A Gull is a fraction of the size of a Pelican but they can torment the big guys.

When a Brown Pelican surfaces after a dive they may have 2 gallons of water in their pouch along with a fish. They need to ‘spit out’ the salt water.

A Gull knows this. As soon as the Pelican opens his mouth…the Gull dives for the fish. And they get them too.

I can’t imagine what it would be like to stick my head in there!

  1. I didn’t know that gulls can be so nasty. I always wondered why gulls are often around pelicans. I know right now. I hope this pelican was very careful and didn’t lose his fish.
