Pelican Tries to Eat a Duck

Pelican big mouth

Pelicans will eat anything that can fit in their terrifying abyss of a mouth, including, apparently, ducks.

The incredible sighting was caught on camera by Amish Patel at Lakhota Lake, Jamnagar, Gujarat, India.

“I started photographing the pelican, with something in its pouch, which I first thought to be a big fish — but I discovered it was instead a common pochard duck, which was trying its best to escape!” he told the Atlantic.

Pelicans all over the world have been spotted trying to swallow ducks, apparently. The video below was filmed in New Orleans:
