두루미 (Grus japonensis) - Red-crowned Crane

호수공원의 자연학습원으로 가는데 조류사육장이 있길래 가봤더니 두루미 한마리가 살고 있더군요. 무척 커서 놀랐습니다. 키가 보통 어른보다 큰 것 같았습니다...

사육장의 안내에는 다음과 같은 문구가 있었습니다.
"단정학(丹頂鶴)은 1997년 4월 중국의 치치하얼 시로부터 기증받은 것으로 천연기념물 제202호로 지정되어 있는 세계적으로 희귀한 새입니다."

The Red-crowned Crane (Grus japonensis), also called the Japanese Crane and 두루미 or 학 in Korean is a large crane and is the second rarest crane in the world. In East Asia, it is known as a symbol of luck and fidelity. At 55 inches high, the crane does not make easy prey, for all that it stands out in its natural habitat of marshes and swamps. When it matures, the Red-crowned Crane is snow white with a patch of red skin on its head. This patch of skin becomes bright red when the crane becomes angry or excited. An exceptional male weighed 15 kg (33 lbs.), making this the heaviest crane on record, although large Sarus Crane are taller.
