Mr Percival, the pelican that starred in the 1976 Australian movie Storm Boy has fallen off his perch. Who knew that pelicans lived so long?
But before you go and get all sentimental about this, you should know that old Percy had more than a few skeletons in his nest. Just like the others of his kind, Percy was almost certainly a chick molesting, murderous jerk.
Other species of animals that are known to kill their own include chimpanzees, lions, gorillas, wolves, chickens, dragonflies, monitor lizards, cheetahs, crows, barred owls, lions, baboons, crocodiles, hedgehogs, swine, gerbils, mice, octopus, cats, rats, bats, toads, fish, crustaceans, salamanders, spiders, praying mantises, scorpions, herons, boobies, egrets, ground squirrels, lemmings, hamsters, mice, voles, muskrats, gerbils, prairie dogs, kangaroos, butterflies, marmots, eagles, falcons, bears, rabbits, stags, wild horses, cobras, hammerhead sharks (in utero) and hyenas.
However pelicans are unique because of their added penchant for pelican paedophilia.
