The eagle wouldn't dare

A photo of a bald eagle looking like it’s taking a whiz on the side of the road, isn’t quite what it seems.

Christian Sasse snapped the amusing photo “by accident” at Boundary Bay in Tsawwassen.

The Vancouver photographer shared the comical photo to his Facebook page on Friday, and it quickly went viral.

While it would be funny to believe the eagle is urinating, it’s in fact not responsible for the stream of liquid. An interesting looking clam, called a geoduck (pronounced gooey-duck) is the culprit.

In a post on Facebook, Sasse says the clams they dug up had shells about six inches wide.

“Buried in the sand, you’ll only find geoducks at very low tide, and you might not know you’re standing over one until it squirts you with water as it swiftly digs itself deeper,” says Sasse.

“This is exactly what happened in this picture! And the eagle looks so surprised. As if he is saying … ‘that was not me!'

“I just took a picture of the eagle and at that exact moment the clam started squirting, it was really funny,” says Sasse.
