The long thin sack of skin hanging from the crane's head or throat is called a wattle. The Wattle Crane eats roots, insects, grass seeds, frogs, and snakes. They are an endangered species and live in Ethiopia, south-central Africa and South Africa in large, undisturbed, shallow wetlands. They mate for life and build large nests on the ground out of trampled grass in sedge marshes and open grass.
