Among the many strange and exotic large birds of Africa, the stork is unique in that it has never gone extinct. Some believe that storks have existed on earth for 40 million years. They eat frogs, insects, small mammals and worms. And, of course they have the reputation of bringing good fortune to humans.
“Now listen here son, I say listen here. Keep your head down and don’t make any eye contact with the photographer. Frogs and insects make a much heartier meal.”
