#14 – The Shoebill
Of all the conceivable names, how on Earth is it called the Shoebill? It looks like it’s ready to end your existence.
It gets its name from its bill that resembles a shoe – a large one at that. Shoebills, which live in the marshes of eastern tropical Africa, are usually after smaller prey, so you should be safe. They can eat fish like lungfish, eels, and catfish, but they can even eat reptiles, snakes, and juvenile crocodiles. What kind of monster eats crocodiles?
