This Massive Bird Is One Of The Largest In The World, And It Has A Disturbing Secret.
But among the birds of prey around the world, none are as mighty as the harpy eagle. These hulking creatures are large and in charge, and they do things a bit… differently than the rest of the bird kingdom.
The harpy eagle is the largest and most powerful eagle, and can grow up to 42 inches long.
Their wingspan can reach a record 7-and-a-half feet.
And their massive talons are about 3-4 inches long – the size of a grizzly bear’s claws
And they use those… to prey on and dismember primates.
Yes, these birds have specialized in hunting monkeys and sloths.
Snatching them from trees mid-flight.
I hope I never see one! Share these fearsome birds with your friends below.
