gaaah all the tubes in the neck get inverted at the launch bone...or else theyre just flopping around willy nilly
>>
Have any of these creatures ever pecked a man to death?
>>
>>4619477
I'd bet not. Herons are not particularly territorial, they are usually in spots not easily accessible (like out in tide flats, marshes, etc.), and mostly just go about their business without any interest in people.
>>
>>4620126
Seems a waste to have all that beak and not peck a man to death at least once
>>
>>4620142
You don't need a lot of beak to do some damage. Look up Magpies in Australia especially.

A Heron swallowed a live Eel, which then pierced its crop.
It is *possible* it could heal, but we are most likely looking at what will be a fatal injury, unless it can be caught and treated in time.

Idk if this is the right thread to ask but:
I was by the river and saw a heron. As I was watching it though, this furry little guy came out of the bushes. Is that a weasel? And is he in danger from the heron?
