A duck has taken up residence on the campus of a college in the UK, and photos of it have quickly become very popular.
It’s all about its size: in the video, you can see that the duck is at least three times taller than other ducks, reaching a height of one meter on its paws. York University biology students did a little research.
As it turns out, Long Boy (the duck’s nickname) is a cross between two other duck species. Apparently, the combination of genes resulted in some of the gigantism that is normally uncommon in ducks.
