Wtf is this nigga
>>
Looks like some kind of potoo
>>
It's a nightjar of some sort. they all look at least that stupid.
>>
That looks like an alien with a earth bird fursona.
>>
It is a potoo, and if you want something interesting about them, look up the noise they make. They're pretty spooky is you ask me.

Just take your kid out into the forest and tell him a ghost story of the last kid that got lost and never came back.

"..and if you're reeeaaal quiet Billy, you can still here him on the wind, crying out for his mother.."

Lucifer Niggerbastard.

>>2058109
A once thought extinct bird that somehow is present before a major calamity happens. Also called, the grinning bird, is know for its void like eyes and ability to hysterically cackle a screech.
They are carnivours.

Well there's no other bird more fitting for the job. This motherfucker looks like it should be sitting on Deaths shoulder, just staring down into your eyes as the scythe swings.
>>
It is a great potoo
They are nocturnal and have gold irises but when in the day light theirs pupils dilate a lot hence the black eyes
>>
>>2058142
Holy fuck

It's like a demon gargling
>>
>>2059950
Shouldn't they dilate at night, since there's less light? If u some a flashlight in someone's eye, it contracts
>>
>>2059950
That gaping maw, what on earth do they eat that they need a mouth that big
>>
>>2060238

I want to get one and name it chip. Potoo chip.

I was thinking the same thing
>>
>>2060231
I don't know if I've got it backwards, but don't the eyes get large so they can let in as much light as possible? If that's right then during the night they should be larger than during the day.
>>
>>2060799
Ya, lots of nocturnal jungle animals have these eyes too. Yellow, with small pupils during the day, almost all black at night, to let in more light.

Owls, cats, those ai-ai things or however you spell them all experience this. Snakes too and other night time reptiles

Man I hope they aren't endangered, even though they are scary they're cool as fuck
>>
>>2060254
That is terrifying
>>
>>2060238

They eat flying insects. The mouth is large to increase the chances of grabbing one, sort of like how a tennis racket is much larger than a tennis ball.

Exactly what it reminded me of.
>>
Is it possible to raise one?
>>
That's a Potoo.
They're funny as fuck imo.
>>
>>2059950
Shouldn't their eyes dilate at night so more light gets in? Do I have a flaw in my fundamental understanding of how vision works and light levels affect eyes?
>>
>>2058109
frogmouth.
>>
>>2066488

No, you're right. All the videos of them during the day show them with gold irises...

Now I'm wondering if those photos are photo shopped or something.
>>
>>2066500
A couple of them could be. >>2059950
I know I saw that one attached to a creepypasta more than a few years ago

>>
>>2058732
hahaha

I got OP's pic from an /x/ thread a good while ago. I posted it in a weird/funny looking animals thread here semi-recently. It's awesome to see this weirdo scary bird get its own thread.

How'd they get a name like POTOO?
