4. Shoebill

This very gracious fella is mostly known for its giant bulbous bill resembling a shoe. Sometimes over 55 inches tall, these birds have an impressive wingspan of 7’7” to 8’6”. Their hunting tactic is plain and simple, yet effective: they stand very still (sometimes for a loong time) until the pray gets close enough so they can grab it.
