Great white pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus)

Great white pelicans reach lengths between 148 and 180 cms (58 - 71 inches), they have a wingspan between 226 and 360 cms (89 - 142 inches) and they weigh between 5 and 15 kgs (11 - 33 lbs).

They are white in colour with long, broad wings that have black and grey primary feathers. They have a large body, short legs, a short tail and webbed feet. They have a long, yellow bill that has a pouch on the lower half.

During the breeding season adults have low, hoarse display calls, but they are generally silent when they are not nesting.

Great white pelicans are strong swimmers and they can reach speeds up to 6 km/hr (3.7 mph).
