Curious Minds Did You Know? A fossilised Pelican skull was found in the Oligocene deposits of South-eastern France that is estimated to be 30 million years old!
Pelicans are a genus of large water birds that makes up the family Pelecanidae. They are characterised by a long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey and draining water from the scooped-up contents before swallowing. They have predominantly pale plumage, the exceptions being the brown and Peruvian pelicans. This figurine is great for anyone with a general interest in avian wildlife.
