This amazing looking bird, is the Shoebill Stork, a dinosaur looking bird, with a death stare that will haunt you in your dreams.

The shoebill is an unusual-looking bird that grows up to 1.5m tall with a wingspan over 2m. Its habitat is restricted to swampy areas of Zambia, Sudan, eastern Zaire, Rwanda, Uganda and western Tanzania.

The world population of shoebills is estimated to be between 3,300 and 5,300 according to 2012 statistics from conservation partnership Birdlife International.

But because the birds live in swamp breeding grounds and are very difficult to access, they are rare subjects for study.

The Shoebill is no vegetarian. In fact, it is a formidable carnivore with an appetite for snakes, lungfish, catfish and even small crocodiles.

A curved hook at the end of the Shoebills beak acts as a spear that delivers a fatal blow every single time.

Thanks for watching
