Marabou Stork (Leptoptilos crumeniferus)

One of the Marabou Storks dug into the water and effortlessly picked up something to eat. Unfortunately, a water turtle was also biting into the object, and it would not let loose without a fight! So the Marabou Stork shook its head a few times, the turtle finally let loose and fell back into the water. Then the Marabou Stork swallowed the object down, putting it into its neck at first. Talk about a peaceful scene at the waterhole...!
