Swan feeds fish at zoo

A black swan feeds carps at Shenzhen Wildlife Park in Shenzhen, south China's Guangdong Province, April 7, 2007. The waterbird and the fish formed the unusual bonding after living together for three years.

A swan in a Chinese zoo feeds its fish friends every day to the amazement of visitors.
The swan picks up the feed and takes it to the mouths of the waiting fish, reports Southern City Papers.

"They became close friends after three years of playing together," say staff at Safari Park in Shenzhen City.

"Every time I come to feed the swan, all the fish follow him to the bank, with mouths open. And he takes the food and puts some into each of the hungry mouths," says the feeder.

"When everyone has eaten enough, the swan goes back onto the water and plays with his fish friends again."
