The Bear Tier List

Kookaburra Supervillain

Kookaburra Supervillain

The laughing kookaburra bird lives up to its name with one of the most charming calls around. But Connor Margetts figured out that if he slows down the sound of his bird, Dacelo, that lighthearted call takes on a decidedly more evil tone.
