This is a scene you probably won't spot at the pond down at your local park. Dozens black swans at Shenzhen Safari Park seemed to be feeding carp.

The hungry fish thronged by the banks of the lake as the graceful black birds craned their long necks to feed them mouth to mouth.

The credulity stretching scene is a regular occurrence at the Guangdong Province zoo, where keepers said the swans have been feeding their carp friends every day for the past ten years.

That's really cool. It reminds me of birds who take up fishing by using bait!
