E.T.

Ok, now that I have probably made you scream, here is the common photo of another bump goose (anser cygnoides), not with a broken beak... Both shots taken at Quinta da Alagoa.

Oh the poor thing! Does it hurt them when their beaks are broken?

No, U.P. is not it — that's a state university. But today's post is about the Jesuit university I mentioned in my comment yesterday. ;)

Heh, it's not THAT easy to make me scream, I was just wondering what kind of animal it was when I saw the first photo.
This is awsome.

I have never seen one of these. This is weird, but really, I can't stop looking at the photo! Yikes! Your text made me laugh too.
