Kookaburras locked in intense tug of war

Two Kookaburras were locked in an intense tug of war over a piece of meat.

Even though an onlooker attempted to break it up by offering them more meat, and even placing it on top of their beaks, they looked like they were never going to budge.

"I can’t even describe what’s happening here, you just need to see it. We tried to break up these two by giving them more meat."

Stubborn little things these Kookaburras.

Kookaburras are native to Australia and New Guinea, so if you’re wondering how you’ve heard the name before, it’s probably thanks to the countless episodes of Barney you watched as a child.
