Birds of prey: soaring, swooping, landing all cool on a branch like it’s nothing. Eh, not really for me, says the secretary bird. This avian prefers to kick its victims to death, even snakes. It’s this week’s episode of Absurd Creatures! Come for the kickboxing, stay for the ’90s hip-hop reference.
Find every episode of Absurd Creatures here. And I’m happy to hear from you with suggestions on what to cover next. If it’s weird and we can find footage of it, it’s fair game. You can get me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter at @mrMattSimon.
