Matt Lauer BirdMatt Lauer Bird, Matt Lauer’s head is confused with a turtle by a bird on Tuesday. On the “Today” Tuesday morning, a bird flew over Lauer’s head and dug in their sharp claws

Lauer and co-host Ann Curry was doing a segment on the exotic animals that one of the birds took a liking to Lauer. Lauer shouted “Oh, no!” as one of the animals are comfortable in your head.

The studio audience laughed. Someone came up to feed the birds and Lauer said, “That thing has sharp claws!” The animal keeper, said, “That’s a common position.” Lauer later added: “I mistook for a turtle.”

Today Show co-host Matt Lauer in an interview conducted Tuesday morning, when an unexpected guest arrived and landed on his head. The guest was a bird that was part of a segment of exotic animals Lauer was carried out with co-anchor Ann Curry.

As Lauer said “Oh No” the audience broke out laughing, and Lauer, being the professional he is, allows the bird to keep the head as he continued with the segment. When someone came to feed the birds Matt said, “That it has sharp claws!”

Matt Lauer said later: “I was confused with a turtle,” after the animal keeper said “That’s a common position.”

The Today Show co-host was not kidding about the bird’s claws digging in the head, a closeup of the head with bird shows claws sink into his flesh.

Matt Lauer has the worst luck with animals, you will recall that in March 2009 he was riding his bicycle when he had a collision with a deer that was removed from his shoulder. During that collision Today Show producer Jim Bell said: “A species of deer came out of nowhere and in an effort to avoid hitting the deer, Matt slammed on the brakes and went flying. He separated his shoulder.”

Perhaps it should be kept away from any future segments Lauer animals for their safety and the safety of their coworkers.
