King Vulture

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A Vulture is any member of the family Vulturidæ included among the birds of prey. In all the vultures the head and neck are more or less bare, the beak is long and curved only at the tip; the legs and feet are large and powerful, but the toes and claws are relatively weak. They are thus well adapted for walking and feeding on the ground, but are unable to carry off their prey like the eagles and hawks. The wings are very strong, and their powers of swift and sustained flight are remarkable."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
