The large crane is a wading bird with a long neck and long legs. There are fifteen different species of cranes that live all over the world except on Antarctica and South America. Cranes easily adapt to their season and nutritional requirements, changing their diet from grains, berries and plants to small rodents, amphibians and fish.
The large birds lay eggs in nests that they construct in a platform way in shallow water. Two eggs are typically laid at the same time, and both parents help to raise the young, which is what sets the crane apart from many other species of birds.
