Description The bigu (Phalacrocorax brasilianus) is a bird of the family of the falacrocoracdeos. Such birds inhabit the area from Mexico to South America, measuring about 75 cm of length and with black coloration. They are also known by the names: bigu-una, imbiu, mergulho, miu e pata-d'gua. That magnificent animal lacks the gland uropigial, that liberates substances that leave the feathers impermeablethe. This is an advantage in relation to the other birds when hunting , since with water in feathers, they turn heavier and it keeps less air, with that he dives more quickly. The name bigu comes from the Tupi language - Mbigu.
