Summary "You may not believe it, but skuas are truly some of the most disgusting creatures on the planet. Not only do these birds eat baby penguins and rotting flesh, but they harass other birds until they throw up in fear. Then they eat the vomit. Pretty disgusting! Skuas prefer to steal their meals from other birds, but they are not above attacking and killing animals if they have to. As bird bullies, skuas are big and powerful and can spend years at sea. Readers will be thrilled to learn more about these animals and their gross eating habits"--Provided by the publisher.
