Rumble / Unreal AnimalsThere is nothing worse than waiting in line. Time is too precious to waste it doing nothing. The problem is that you know that you have to remain in that same spot for however long it takes because life might not give you another chance at this opportunity. So you wait, and wait, and wait.

Waiting to be served in a store is probably one of the worst ways to spend your time. You might get angry at all the people in front of you, or even angry at the salesperson because they are not working as fast as you would like them to, but try to remember that it’s none of their fault. It’s not their fault that there is such a line, they are doing everything they can as fast as they can, and there is no magic button that can make all of the people go away as soon as you click it.

What happens when you live by the beach and get hungry? You stop by the local fish and chips shop. The only problem is waiting to be served! Apparently this pelican possesses all of the patience us humans don’t, because he is calm enough to wait for the service to be done. He looks one way or another, without uttering a word, all the while nosy people love to film him. Nowadays, it gets hard to even order food. Although pelicans specialize in eating fish, they also prey on crustaceans, amphibians, turtles, and other birds. If it can fit down their throats, it’s fair game. However, we just hope that this fella was able to get his fish in the end.

Pelicans are awesome. They’ve got interesting feet, spectacular hunting habits, and throat pouches that can trap a lot more than fish. Here are 10 things you might not have known about these eccentric birds. Where is he going to carry the so-wanted fish he is waiting for so patiently? Not in his pouch though. Many people mistakenly believe that the large pouch that dangles from a pelican’s bill, is used to store food, like a built-in lunch box. While pelicans amusing, this isn’t accurate. In reality, pelicans use their pouches as a means of capturing food - not as a place to keep it tucked away for extended periods.

A video with an injured pelican has emerged showing the rescued upset pelican trying to flee, but because there was a large lure that was hooked through its chest and the other end through it's right foot, it was relatively easy to catch. That coupled with the bird having just caught a catfish which was lodged in its gullet sideways thus restricting it's movements even further. The quicker the pelican could be returned back to its environment, the less stress the pelican will have to endure and the more likely it will make a quick recovery. The whole process from capture to release was less than 30 minutes. In the end the pelican flew off but stayed in the area to feast on the discarded remains of local fisherman's catch after cleaning them.
