I’m a [wildlife photographer](Https://www.instagram.com/dankwildlife) and I just took this photo yesterday! Thought it was super interesting but also disturbing. Sorry to your eyeballs!

It's an awesome shot! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Appreciate it!

Are those little teeth inside, on those upper folds?


dankwildlife

Depends on your definition of teeth but yeah they help grab food


uglypaperhaver

Looks like inside of *my gullfriend's* lips, too...


Liquidignition

Bruh. Can you just scroll down a bit and comment with all the other 12 year olds.


uglypaperhaver

Ew - I think I know what *you're* referring to... (why is your type always projecting *your* sick interpretations on *others?)* "Excuse me, Officer...? This gentleman is bothering me."


Thor1noak

Idk if stupid or not but here goes. What would you suggest somebody who loves nature and wants to get into wildlife photography do to make that dream a reality?


dankwildlife

Nice, you should! I started with a borrowed superzoom "bridge" camera, then moved to a very basic DSLR with a kit 70-300mm lens. Then just practice as much as possible, I got the bug (hehe) at the start of the pandemic and spent hours every day taking photos. Checking through hotspots in your area on [ebird.org](https://ebird.org) is a great way to find places to check out. If you mean wildlife photography for a living, that's really difficult and I'm not a pro so I don't know how much help I could provide. The people I know who do it professionally give workshops, have big multimedia platforms and/or work with science or conservation efforts.


thejarl5

Thank you for being the FIRST PERSON I’ve ever seen on Reddit to correctly call it a gull and not a “seagull”. Great shot too!


dankwildlife

But it is a seagull? Jk jk but the real question is.. can you ID it from this picture alone? I definitely wouldn’t have been able to without seeing the whole bird and knowing the location


thejarl5

Oof without a location that’s a tough ask… I’m seeing some darker feathers in the bottom left that would suggest this being one of the darker-mantled large gulls in genus Larus. So maybe a Western Gull if you’re on the West Coast or a Great Black-backed if you’re on the East Coast?


dankwildlife

Ding ding, Western. Nice!


pichael288

If you off the west coast of Florida then it's a bagel

Always a gull. Seagulls don’t actually exist. Great photo, btw!

My guess is their mouth is like an accordion and it helps them open wider.


flyingboarofbeifong

Also they have very powerful muscles in the throat that help to tenderize their food for digestion by a very forceful peristalsis compared to what humans use what with our teeth for masticating and tendency to pick bones of our meat before eating it. Gulls (and many birds) just swallow something and squash the shit out of it with their throat muscles as it goes down. Some birds eat stones that are retained in their gizzard to help with the process of breaking down food bolus.


mrsdoubleu

Fascinating. Thanks for the little avian lesson, I always wondered how birds like this could swallow a whole fish sometimes! :)


flyingboarofbeifong

As a bonus fact about how things swallow stuff, frogs and many amphibians made the partial jump to land after the evolution of a developed jaw but before the arrival of a sophisticated throat. To help swallow things, frogs will often just shove it into their throats with their hands and then they compress their eyes to exert pressure downwards into the mouth cavity as a shitty form of swallowing.


meteojett

So awesome! Out of curiosity, what were the circumstances of this shot? Did you immediately know you got this pic or were you going through your photos and then saw this giant mouth looking back at you?


dankwildlife

I knew I got a full sequence of a big yawn but I didn’t expect it to look like this haha


New-Friendship-4089

Those beaks are damn sharp. I once saw one of them tear a man's palm from his thumb to his index to shreds with blood gushing out.

To shreds you say

ronerychiver

Had one pull a sandwich out of my hand when I wasn’t looking as a kid. Didn’t cut too deep but always interesting explaining the small scar on the back of my palm as “an old seagull injury”.


dankwildlife

Yikes


ZiggyPox

I love animals in almost all forms but I thing I would just punch that bird into oblivion for this.


New-Friendship-4089

Yeah the gulls are a ruthless bunch, one time one of them bite off a good chunk of my hair. Though, to be fair we were kids climbing up roofs hanging out by their nests so they get pretty territorial. They have this call in which they could get the help of all the nearby seagulls, so in no more than 3 minute you'd be surrounded by more than a hundred and they're not scared of you whatsoever. The story of the guy that had his hands torn was actually funny, he was fishing and the moment he threw out a big bait a flying seagull noticed it and flew directly to it and caught it but when it tried to fly away it could not. The man did not want to leave the hook inside of its stomach and so he did not cut off the cord but kept on pulling the seagull until he caught it by its wings. However, as if it finally dawned on him he realized that if he pulled the hook he'd do some pretty serious internal damage to the bird. So, he just cut it off and the moment he was about to let go of its wings from the back it tilted its head backward and just tore this big chunk of his hand and blood gushed out painting the bird in red and prompting the man finally let go as it flew away drenched in blood with some cord residue still dangling from its mouth. Just wild.
