With a face only a mother could love, the Marabou Stork is one of the ugliest creatures around with its scabby, balding head and habit of squirting excrement onto its own legs. On the positive side, it is one of the largest flying birds in the world with a wingspan of 11 ft 6 inches - slightly less than the Wandering Albatross. These storks need to eat more than 1.6 pounds of food a day, obtaining it mostly through scavenging.
