The bearded vulture is a huge bird that you would not want to mess with! It can grow to 120cm tall, and comes with claws and a beak that look like something you should need a permit to carry around! Its diet consists mainly of bones, which means they don't have to compete with other animals for food. They lay two eggs but only raise one chick as the stronger chick drives its sibling out of the nest to die. And then there is the matter of their plumage, their feathers are originally black and white. But these birds deliberately seek out rust and use it to dye themselves red, just because it looks cool!
So basically these vultures live in the mountains so it can look down on us all. It smashes bones for a living. It encourages its children to fight to the death. And... it dyes its feathers. Why? Because it looks awesome, that's why... Make sure you are following @the_insta_safari 🐙 🐧 🐿 - 6 hours ago
