What is for dinner?


The Saddle-billed stork relies on fish for its primary source of nutrition! Fish ranging from 15-30 cm long and weighing up to 500g are the ideal size for a saddle-billed stork. When fish cannot be found, then the saddle-billed stork will feed on many things such as: crabs, shrimp, frogs, reptiles, small mammal, insects, young birds, and mollusks. These nutrition conditions are heavily favored in the wetland area of Africa. So you probably wont see them eating a winter flounder or a muskellunge anytime soon!
