Heron Eats A Rabbit

Enjoying a leisurely wade in the waters of the Dutch undergrowth this grey heron decided to go in search of lunch when he came across this unsuspecting black rabbit.Undeterred by its size, the grey heron, the largest bird of its kind in Europe, swooped down and gobbled the rabbit up in one mouthful, as these pictures show.

Pin It now!

This is a great catch. I would have never imagined a crane eating a rabbit. Interesting how he dips it in the water to make it easier to swallow. Crazy.
