The wood stork (Mycteria americana) an endangered species, sits in the Gatorland alligator breeding marsh and bird sanctuary near Orlando, Florida. The wood stork feeds by touch -- moving it's bill back and forth in the water, snapping up prey with its bill. The wood stork's snapping reflex is the fastest of all vertebrates -- 25 miliseconds. The Gatorland bird sanctuary is the largest and most easily accessible wild wading bird rookery in east central Florida.
