It's not a question of where he grips it! It's a simple matter of weight ratios! A 5 ounce european swallow cannot carry a 2 pound coconut!
Why yes, it could grip it by the husk.
Carried? By a swallow?
Of course not, they could be carried.
Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?
The swallow may fly south for the winter, yet these are not natives from our land?
Coconuts? From here? But they're tropical!
I love coconuts :)
