This year I went to Japan for 2.5 months, and while I was there my dad insisted that we go to the zoo to see this thing… A shoebill (hashibiroko in Japanese). They are known for standing still for insanely long periods of time, and that fascinated my dad. So we went to Ueno Zoo to see the shoebill.

Much to our disappointment, it moved quite a bit… Its head anyway. But it WAS ugloarable, and so I wasn’t too disappointed.

I present to you.. The shoebill!

The Shoebill scares me.

Don’t worry, Steph. The shoebill may eat dreams, but it poops them out as magic.
