    A rather large lunch

    This Black stork was struggling with this eel for at least half an hour. It tried pecking it in half,it tried battering it against some rocks. It just could'nt swallow it whole. Eventually it gave in and tried for something smaller. I think the eel probably weighed in at about 4-5 lbs
