Pelicans are well known and attractive aquatic birds. Our pelican is modelled in a ready for take-off pose with a fish in its beak so that you can see its enormous wingspan as well as its conspicuous throat pouch. Pelicans are very large aquatic birds with a wingspan which can reach over 3 metres.

Pelicans live around the shores of oceans, rivers and lakes since their diet consists almost exclusively of fish. The pelicans' most distinctive feature is their long beak with a throat pouch on the bottom. This allows the pelican to use its beak like a scoop when hunting for fish and carry even large fish. Pelicans' feathers are usually white with black sections on their wings. Sometimes they even appear slightly pink or grey.
