Marabou stork (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) killing and eating a Marsh terrapin, or Side-necked terrapin (Pelomedusa subrufa), which it had caught at the waterhole. This large stork mostly specialises in scavenging, competing with vultures for carcasses and human rubbish. However, it also takes live prey such as fish, rats, small and young birds and terrapins. It roosts and nests in colonies. The marabou stork, which is around 150 centimetres tall, is found in sub-Saharan Africa. Filmed at the Moringa waterhole, adjacent to the Halali restcamp, in Etosha National Park, Namibia.
