Also known in Namibia as the 'Flying Banana' for obvious reasons. The yellow-billed hornbill is mainly an omnivorous ground feeder, eating small insects, spiders, seeds and occasionally fruit. The species is known to forage co-operatively with dwarf mongoose, catching prey items that the mongoose scratch up from the ground. In return the hornbills alert the mongoose to danger from overhead raptors. Yellow-billed hornbills are monogamous and will live in breeding pairs or small family groups. When they begin their courtship the male will feed the female for up to a month by bringing her small bits of food in his mouth and her devoted partner continues to feed her while she incubates their eggs.

A large canvas print is a fantastic way to inexpensively make a dramatic statement.
