We love the Shoebill; it has the same goofy charm as the long-lost dodo. This playful art print comes in two different background colours, peach, and cream.
Shoebill Facts: The Shoebill Stork was discovered by European scientists in the immense marshy areas of Africa in 1850, although DNA evidence shows that they date back nearly 160 million years. Though they are solitary animals, shoebills bow and clatter to each other to attract mates or communicate. Despite their sinister appearance they are generally calm, docile birds and are not harmful to humans.
They can stand motionless for hours. They can reach up to five feet tall with an eight-foot wingspan. Their average lifespan is around 35 years in the wild, and in captivity they can live up to 50 years. It’s foot-long bill resembles a Dutch clog and allows it to grab large prey including snakes, monitor lizard’s lungfish and eels.
