The marabou stork is a massive bird: large specimens are thought to reach a height of 152 cm (60 in) and a weight of 9 kg (20 lb). A wingspan of 3. 7 m (12 ft) was accepted by Fisher and Peterson, who ranked the species as having the largest wing-spread of any living bird. Even higher measurements of up to 4. 06 m (13. 3 ft) have been reported, although no measurement over 3. 20 m (10. 5 ft) has been verified. It is often credited with the largest spread of any landbird, to rival the Andean condor; more typically, however, these storks measure 225–287 cm (7–9 ft) across the wings, which is about a foot less than the average Andean condor wingspan and nearly two feet less than the average of the largest albatrosses and pelicans. Typical weight is 4. 5–8 kg (9. 9–17. 6 lb), unusually as low as 4 kg (8. 8 lb), and length (from bill to tail) is 120 to 130 cm (47 to 51 in). Females are smaller than males. Bill length can range from 26. 4 to 35 cm (10. 4 to 13. 8 in). Unlike most storks, the three Leptoptilos species fly with the neck retracted like a heron.
