American White Pelican Skull
BC-065 $170.00

Pelicans are among the largest and heaviest birds in the world. Unlike the smaller brown pelicans who dive from heights to catch their fish, a flock of white pelicans feeds by dipping their pouches in unison into schools of fish while swimming together in formation. Breeding adults develop a horny knob at the end of their long bills. This is believed to act as a target for aggression, sparing their delicate pouches from permanent injury, as the adults fight and compete for territories.

As Dixon Lanier Merritt wrote:

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!

1-part skull (jaw glued to cranium).
