A new viral video shows a woman try to feed a pelican a piece of a banana, but then something happens that she never saw coming.
The Russian woman was on vacation in Hurghada, Egypt when she approached the long-beaked bird with a banana. Just seconds later, her plan had totally backfired.
Ignoring the banana, the hungry pelican instead tries to eat her whole arm. Remarkably, the woman stays calm throughout her ordeal, which only gets worse.
After eating the banana for a second, the pelican then tries to eat her neck. He then goes for her necklace, her bikini, and finally her face!
While pelicans don’t usually eat humans, “the diet of pelicans usually consists of fish, which can be up to 30 cm (1 ft) long, but amphibians, turtles, crustaceans and occasionally birds are also eaten.”
Would you have been able to stay as calm as she did during this encounter? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
