    Pelicans are cute and useful, they eat (well, swallow) pigeons. We need more pigeon-eating birds.

    How can she be so afraid of the pelican isn't being hostile but just curious!? Doesn't she work with wildlife? Sir David Attenborough would find this behavior fascinating as would I, no doubt about it! This is really baffling me...

      well they did Evolve to be afraid of animals (humans included as animals) its just that being on that island for so many generations made them eventually lose the fear of predators .....or people's tents.

      mischieveusMishief i agree about all the stuff about animals (humans are included as animals) but i would fell vary overwhelmed if a huge bird like a pelican would walk over and casually get in my tent people arn used to those things well it is the Galapagos.

      .....Also why do birds poop so much?
