Weird Animals – Top 10 Bizarre African Animals

#9 – Shoebill

Weird Animals in Africa

No, that is not your principal reprimanding you for something you did not do. What you are looking at is the Shoebill bird named after its clog-shaped bill. The shoebill’s imposing look makes it one of Africa’s very weird animals. The shoebill bird or shoe-billed stork wades in and around the swampy areas of the White Nile in northeastern Africa.

Standing at 115 cm tall, its grey feathers, long legs, broad wings and severe demeanor serve to distinguish it from other birds. It produces a loud, hollow sound it by clapping the mandibles of its bill together. The Shoebill feeds on a diet of lungfish, its favorite, young crocodiles, fish and turtles.
