Pelicans are most famous for their characteristic pouch. The large aquatic birds make up their own family, Pelicanidae, this consists of eight different species. Pelicans are mainly light coloured, with the exception of two species that are brown. These large birds have very long beaks. They also have long necks to match their long beaks. The lower half of their beak has a flexible skin pouch, known as a “gular pouch.” This expandable pouch allows them to catch lots of fish at once. Pelicans seem to prefer warmer regions. They prefer living and hunting in inland and coastal water bodies, and are largely absent from polar regions, the open ocean, and isolated islands. They prefer to eat fish, but they have been known to prey on other food sources as well. Some odd meals include crabs, insects,birds, small mammals, frogs and turtles. The American white pelican is found in North America and Mexico. The brown pelican is found in North America, northern South America, the Caribbean, and the Galapagos. The Peruvian species is found in Central and South America. The Great White pelican lives in the shallow swamps in Africa and is one of the largest flying birds in the world.

Wudimals are known for hand-making beautifully crafted animals figurines out of sustainable wood. Their process is meticulous and thoughtful, ensuring that the shape of the animals will work with the grain of the wood, and the wood grain is joined cohesively throughout the figure, to guarantee that the product is sturdy and stable. Their products are then checked and tested, to make sure they are compliant with the stringent rules of EN71 (Europe) / UKCA (UK)/ AS/NZS 8124 (Australia & New Zealand / ASTM F963 (USA). Once the animal is ready to go, they are packed and shipped using the least amount of resources possible. Wudimals are also 1% for the Planet members, meaning they also give 1% off all sales back to non profit environmental charities.
