The African double-toothed barbet (Lybius bidentatus) is named for the two notches on each side of its bill. These notches are used to gather food – it eats a variety of fruits, and it will cling to tree trunks whilst hunting for and consuming a wide variety of insects, arthropods (especially scorpions and centipedes) and small vertebrates (such as lizards and frogs). It also hawks flying insects. Unlike many barbets, it doesn't have a beard. The double-toothed barbets generally lives in the understory of dense woodland, and is found in a continent-wide band south of the Sahara.
