Pelicans are worth 30 points. This value changes if the pelican is consumed whilst paralysed by either ice breath from the Ice Shark, the electric ability from the Electro Shark or stunned by the Laser.
Pelicans mainly soar well above sea level, but sometimes drop down to the water and remain half-submerged. Pelicans also occasionally walk on the land. Pelicans are easily scared away by sharks and this can make them difficult to catch. However, with a Jetpack this can be countered. They can be also found in the Christmas Wonderland.
Appearance in Hungry Shark World
Pelicans return in Hungry Shark Evolution's sequel Hungry Shark World. In this game, they are less likely to fly out of the water, and they are also bigger. Pelicans are not as common in this game, and usually spawn in groups of three or more in the Pacific Islands and the Arabian Sea. In Hungry Shark World, Pelicans are brown with a white head unlike the white pelicans with black wings in Hungry Shark Evolution.
- There are ducks in Hungry Shark: Night instead of Pelicans.
- Sometimes a(n) Exotic Bird will appear in a group of pelicans.
- Pelicans is one of the prey in the basic map that can be found in Christmas Wonderland beside Sardines, Seal Pups and Exotic Birds.
- In Hungry Shark Evolution, pelicans can be found in space. This is obviously unrealistic as they would die from lack of oxygen.
