Caption: Marabou stork (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) with a catfish (order Siluriformes). This large stork specialises in scavenging, competing with vultures for carcasses and human rubbish. It also takes live prey such as fish, rats, small and young birds, and will also eat eggs. It roosts and nests in colonies. The marabou stork, which is around 150 centimetres tall, is found in sub-Saharan Africa. Photographed in the Duba Plains, Botswana.
