Hangerbilled Hummingbird by platypus12 Hangerbilled Hummingbird by platypus12
For the #Urban-Jungle-Project.

The Hangerbilled Hummingbird is a large specie of hummingbird that has become very well adapted for thriving inside building (especially malls) thanks to its anatomy, which it uses to hide from predators by disguising itself as a clothes hanger. It does this by hanging from its curved beak and spreading its wings open, thus giving it the appearance of a clothes hanger, with the white coloration of the Hangerbill's feathers to make the disguise seem even more convincing. If this disguise fails, the Hangerbill can simply just hang from heights that predators incapable of flight cannot reach. Because of its clever disguise, the Hangerbill Hummingbird is more commonly found inside buildings than outdoors.

That show even makes me imagine the animals that dwell in the remains of cities walking around and acting like humans. It's a little cartoonish.

It made me wonder how the animals would adapt to the remains of human civilization, so I made this project. :D
