Jacana Bird Rescues Babies From Crocodile By Becoming Freaky Multi-Legged Beast

This is a video of an African jacana father gathering his chicks to move away from a hungry crocodile by letting them climb up under his wings, giving himself the appearance of a mutant bird with a bunch of extra legs in the process. Those aren’t his legs though, those are his chicks’ legs. My chick’s legs? Long and golden tan — just the way I like them. I’m kidding, she’s like 5’1″ and pale as a ghost, just don’t tell her I said that.
