They look like dangerous knives. However, these are the beaks of Hornbills, a fascinating, omnivorous family of endangered birds found in tropical and subtropical Africa and Asia. Seeing a hornbill fly is a one of a kind experience. They are characterised by a long, down-curved and brightly coloured beak that sometimes features a casque on the upper mandible. The size of these breathtaking beaks can reach up to half of the entire body. This vastly differs from the small changes observed in the beak of Galapagos finches.
