How well do you think you know shoebills?

Shoebills, which live in the swamps of eastern tropical Africa derive their name from their enormous shoe-shaped bill.

If you like to compare sizes, shoebill has the third-longest bill among extant birds after pelicans and large storks and can outrival the pelicans in bill circumference.

It was not classified until the 19th century, after skins, and eventually, live specimens were brought to Europe.

This is a fairly difficult shoebill quiz that has 10 questions. Make sure you like our Facebook page or subscribe to browser notifications to find out about our future quizzes!
