Something You Won't See on Animal Planet

Nature sure is fascinating:
    Children aghast as pelican swallows pigeon whole

    Families strolling through a London park were left shocked when a pelican picked up and swallowed an unsuspecting pigeon.

    The Eastern White pelican struggled with the desperately frantic pigeon in its beak for more than 20 minutes before swallowing it whole.

    The moment was caught on camera by photographer Cathal McNaughton, who was taking pictures of the wildlife in St James's Park.

    The pigeon was still alive when it reached the pelican's stomach, he said.
Sorry, kids. Nature may be fascinating, but no one ever said it was always going to be pretty.
