The World’s Strangest Bird
Find out what makes the South American Hoatzin the world’s strangest bird on today’s Creation Moments Minute!
The South American Hoatzin is a very strange-looking bird with its blue skin, red eyes, and a four inch crest of spiky feathers on its head. Young Hoatzins have claws on their wings, allowing them to climb trees just like a monkey. And they even become expert underwater swimmers before they can fly.
Hoatzin have one more odd characteristic that scientists find the most puzzling of all. They eat leaves! It’s the only bird known to digest its food the same way cows do. As one evolutionary scientist said, “Hoatzins don’t seem to follow the rules of evolution.”
In creating the Hoatzin, God designed a creature that defies any explanation humans might try to invent. Truly the creation declares God’s handiwork!
