A highly endangered shoebill (Balaeniceps Rex) is seen at the Uganda's Wildlife Education Centre in Enteebe, 42 km (26 miles) south of capital Kampala January 26, 2005. The prehistoric looking bird, which stands 1.5 meters tall is grey in colour and has a large beak of about 8 centimetres, and can be found only on marshy warm papyrus swamp areas in Uganda along Lake Victoria and the plains of Rwanda, faces extinction from its natural habitat due to human encroachment on wetland areas.
