Der Schuhschnabel (Balaeniceps rex), auch Abu Markub (arab. „Vater des Schuhs“), ist ein afrikanischer Vogel. Der nach seinem mächtigen Schnabel benannte Vogel ist ein Bewohner von Sümpfen. Oft verharrt ein Schuhschnabel lange Zeit bewegungslos. Abgesehen vom Moment des Beutefangs ist sein ganzes Verhalten von langsamen und bedächtigen Bewegungen geprägt. Obwohl er problemlos fliegen kann, nutzt er diese Fähigkeit nur selten.

Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex) -- such a singular bird.  Looks like a cartoon character, sometimes like a flying dinosaur, and from this view, his bulk reminds me of Batman with his cape.  I'm in awe that this creature exists and I'm only just now learning it. Height varies from 3.5 to 5 feet.  Bill is about 12" long, 5" wide and resembles the Dutch wooden shoe  -- thus the name Shoebill. by 42203050@N00, via Flickr
