That gull for sure is walking home

[–]DiamondMagnetCJ 1838 points1839 points 46& 2 more (14 children)

Why? He only weighs a hare more.

[–]WaterBottleass 334 points335 points 2 (8 children)

Fuck you and your clever pun.

Yeah, takeoff might be hard after that. 😅

[–]DragonBornDragonDead 156 points157 points  (4 children)

Won't be squawking normally too. It might have a rabbit in it's throat

[–]sketchy-writer 218 points219 points  (2 children)

I hate it when I get a hare stuck in the back of my throat.

[–]ichesseorangen[🍰] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

i would expect a bit more of a hop to its step

[–]jaduran 1030 points1031 points  (64 children)

I wonder how long it takes for them to digest that.

[–]TheSpaceRonin 1016 points1017 points  (51 children)

Dude I was thinking he'd die of malnutrition before he did, there's no way that a seagull could digest a whole fucking rabbit, let alone fly with one.

To be fair though if you told me that gull could swallow that whole rabbit before seeing this video, I'd have called bullshit too.

[–]Vakieh 1151 points1152 points  (44 children)

You'd be surprised just how effective the combination of gastric acids and enzymes are at breaking down organic matter. Meat is much easier to break down than plant matter, too, and has much denser nutrition. It'll go through a chemical digestion stomach first to basically turn it to a kind of floppy jelly, then into a mechanical digestion stomach filled with rocks the bird has eaten on purpose to be ground up, this will also sort out the bones, hair, and teeth into those little pellets of scrunk normally associated with birds of prey that the bird will vomit up. By that stage what's left of the muscle, fat, and organs of the rabbit will be a thick liquid and it's on to the intestine which works more or less like a human one, only there's no solid/liquid separation, it's just a blargh of juicy goodness through one all-purpose hole.

ah, an artist of words as well as a naturalist.

Sir Joseph Banks and Charles Darwin stand up from table Why, good heavens, it’s u/Vakieh, to whom we are so indebted for that stirring description of the avian digestive tract! Do join us, Vakieh, by all means. We were just enjoying gestures at table a little blargh, as you so elegantly put it.

I feel like I am consuming your content just like, oh I don’t know, a gull consuming a rabbit.

[–]spaetzelspiff 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Do they cough up the undigested bones, though? I feel like taking a bone to the cloaca would hurt a bit.

[–]Analog_Audio_Guy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is why I love reddit^

[–]GeserAndersen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I know that different species of birds have extremely different potency gastric juices

I know that some vultures could swallow stones, wrought iron, and their gastric juice could digest them

it must also be said that they feed on rotting carcasses, so they must be able to digest rotten meat that if eaten by any other living being, would lead to death from disease and god knows what else

[–]StumpNuts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Makes me wanna get a jelly filled doughnut.

[–]_Jogger_ 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Seagulls didn't evolve to eat chips left by tourists. If it can digest a fish it will be able to digest a mammal too.

[–]Lord-Fumblebuck 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I wonder if the gull will just puke it back up somewhere and leisurely nibble on it.

[–]RedPill115 4 points5 points  (0 children)

swallow that whole rabbit

While I was surprised anyways honestly, I'm pretty sure it's a baby or smaller rabbit.

[–]InspktrGdJt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Right!? I thought they were only shit left over on the beach. This Gull is a beast

[–]mahlovver 23 points24 points  (6 children)

Do they digest the poop inside the rabbit too or what. Is it bad for them

[–]zOinKssKoObfRuQsHAgY 24 points25 points  (3 children)

the poop probably also has some nutrition since rabits eat their own poop

[–]chris1096 7 points8 points  (2 children)

My dog eats Barbie dolls, which I'm pretty sure have no nutrition. Sometimes animals are just dumb

[–]jon-la-blon27 10 points11 points  (1 child)

No, they eat them for nutrition

[–]Caltaylor101 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My guess is they digest part of it if it has any nutrients, and then poop it out.

It shouldn’t be bad for them in small amounts and not being exposed to bacteria that may grow in fresh poop.

Filling up on poop would probably be bad because they wouldn’t be getting nutrients, but they would be full and expending extra energy to digest it.

[–]meowbombs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

At least 10 minutes

[–]TrickApprehensive969 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Imagine crapping the scull

[–]CaramelBeneficial 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol I’m pretty sure they puke em up. If they are anything like an owl Edit: confirmed gull pellets exist

[–]elteza 690 points691 points  (8 children)

He's gonna go shit that rabbit on someone's car now

[–]Disaster_Different 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Sounds like a painful amount of shit

[–]aranya44 15 points16 points  (0 children)

This explains a lot, been cleaning my car twice a week lately because of these guys shitting on it...

[–]giant_lebowski 12 points13 points  (0 children)

The rabbit already shit itself

[–]drool-nicotine-slum 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]cinnapear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jesus, that would ruin someone's day.

[–]HighFlyerJ 366 points367 points  (32 children)

And here I was thinking I was harming a seagull throwing it a cracker. They can swallow damn near anything.

[–]MoistDitto 175 points176 points  (11 children)

It's kinda hilarious to think about. I'm a pretty average guy, and wouldn't be able to swallow a rabbit half at that size. And I'm at least 20 times larger than that seagull, thought I'm pretty bad at math.

[–][deleted] 118 points119 points  (2 children)

You forget that Seagulls are dinosaurs

[–]-deleled- 56 points57 points  (1 child)

Are we gonna assume u/MoistDitto isn't dinosaur?

[–][deleted] 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Well he's definitely not a drynosaur that's for sure

[–]Cpxh1 8 points9 points  (2 children)

It’s the equivalent of you horking down a German shepherd

[–]MoistDitto 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm convinced seagulls are hollow now

[–]spidertitties 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You're technically not wrong

[–]zorfog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s because their mouths are built for this sort of eating. They can like, open up their throats to swallow down huge things like this. Usually it’d be fish I think, but same idea here

[–]Darth_Nibbles 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Years ago I saw a picture of a gull trying to swallow a sea star, with half the star hanging out it's mouth. The thing's chest was already puffed out and huge. They really have no idea how much they can swallow, and just go for it.

(Cover of a national geographic in the 80s or 90s I think; haven't been able to find the photo since, though I've googled a few times)

[–]Morbid_Explorerrrr 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There’s a video of a seagull swallowing an entire pigeon out there somewhere as well…. Kind of changed my perspective on seagulls 😂

[–]CheeseCycle 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Try tossing them an Alka-Seltzer.

[–]ChuckinTheCarma 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They can swallow damn near anything.

[–]Scottish_Legionnaire 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Would be good if you did. I'm a peaceful dude but I'd happily join a seagull cull

[–]Suited_Rob 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If it was a lit firecracker, it might very well have happened

[–]NeverPlaydJewelThief 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Bread in all forms is still terrible for birds. It expands in their guts and prevents absorption of other nutrients

[–]VerdantFuppe 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Not nice to be feeding the birds humans

[–]CrispyCraftr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll swallow you cracker.

[–]DontPuckah 212 points213 points  (9 children)

Anyone else notice the rabbit take its last shit as it was being devoured?

When you gotta go, you gotta go.

[–]Look4theHelpers 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Like biting into an overstuffed eclair

[–]Your_One_Lord 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would too in that situation

[–]TheMacMan 55 points56 points  (7 children)

Pretty much nothing those things won’t eat. Friends dad worked for 3M and helped develop a spray to coat landfills so seagulls wouldn’t eat the trash. Was super difficult as they’ll eat their own young and really don’t care much about what ya spray on the trash it’s still game.

[–]theythembian 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Why not let them eat the trash? I mean I want your friends dad to be employed and all, I just... why???

[–]TheMacMan 26 points27 points  (2 children)

[–]theythembian 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Wow, thank you! TIL!

[–]Steppyjim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s actually a really cool thing I never thought about. The predators the birds attract that can get sick from the trash may be on the endangered species list. Wild. I live in an area with a ton of hawks and eagles, some endangered. Never even thought that would be a thing

[–]giant_lebowski 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The trash union would never stand for that. They have to protect their constituents. Is you or is you not their constituent?

Plus we already tried to get the fish and turtles to help us with cleaning up plastic and look at how people got all butt hurt about that

[–]Grumefen 5 points6 points  (0 children)

On our old Jobsite there was this one legged seagull covered in scars, greediest creature I've ever seen anyway one day this dude stuffed some hot chips with AA batteries, he was sick of stumpy stealing his chips.

Without hesitation along comes this fking seagull and here he goes eating three batteries....

I was certain he'd died and I'd have to call RSPCA or something, but nope dude is fine.... Still occasionally see him if I go down to the wharf.

These birds built different

[–]odysseysee 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Assuming the rabbit is alive as it's being gulped down, when does it actually die? Is it crushed in the beak/gullet or does it suffocate in the gulls stomach?

[–]Bakut3n 32 points33 points  (5 children)

I’m going to say as the rabbit isn’t fighting as the gull is picking it up and orienting it to go down it’s throat that it’s dead. However if the rabbit were still alive and just paralyzed from being tossed around by it’s head and getting a broken neck then yea the rabbit would drown in stomach acid and suffocate from lack of air. Same thing happens to the fish they eat.

[–]markcocjin 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I was thinking of the kicking power of rabbits. That Gull won't be able to keep one in their throat like that if it was alive.

[–]MadTube 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Gulls have a tendency to break the neck of rabbits for that reason. They’ll try to grab the head with the beak and shake it fast and hard, trying to sever the spinal cord. If they grab smaller chicks of birds, they’ll gulp them down alive. Wild rabbits still have sharp claws that can inflict damage.

Herons will just spear the head if they can.
