The legend by woxys The legend by woxys
Harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja, harpyje pralesní).

I am SO SO SO happy I have this fantastic predator in my gallery - FINALLY! :la: to me, this individual seemed to be rather small - for example the one I saw in Berlin was so much bigger that you would guess it was totally different species!

____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja)
Location: Rainforests of South and Central America
Size: 105 cm long wingspan: 220 cm weight: 6-9 Kg (for a female, males are smaller)
Diet: monkeys, sloths, birds, coati, opossum, reptiles. They are top predators
Conservation status: Near Threatened
Interesting facts: it is difficult to judge which species of an eagle is the largest one, but harpy eagle is definitely among the three largest species | harpy eagle hunts its prey during the fligh – the bird flies through the forest, taking the animals right from the branch. Harpy eagle can bear amazingly heavy prey in its claws | the patents prepare the nest only once in three years. The female lays two eggs, but eagles usually rise only one baby, who is fed by patents for more than a year | Harpy eagles are large and dangerous birds - there was at least one case of a ZOO keeper killed by this eagle!

To see more, look at my ZOO GALLERY :aww:
