American White Pelicans and Brown Pelican images are featured in this gallery. The American White Pelican swims along scooping up fish using its large pouch, while the smaller Brown Pelican makes turning dives from the air for prey.
When it comes to food, what animals eat can seem cruel or repulsive to humans. It is a fact that when creatures spend their entire lives in the wild, it is a "eat or be eaten" world. A large part of their waking hours is spent getting food for themselves or their young. Stealing food is a common practice, while the sharing of food is uncommon. This gallery is a fascinating look at this survival behavior.
