Meet The Mystical Harpy Eagle, The Largest Eagles in The World
These powerful birds of prey can reach up to 3 feet 5 inches in height, with an overall wingspan of up to 7 feet 4 inches.
These enormous creatures have convinced a great number of individuals that what they see in the photograph is not an animal but rather a person who is dressed up in a costume, rather than an animal.
As a point of reference, a female bald eagle can weigh up to 12 pounds on average, whereas a female Harpy Eagle can weigh anywhere between 13 and 20 pounds.
These rare birds live in the upper canopy of tropical lowland rainforests from Mexico to Brazil and northern Argentina.
Take note of the Harpy Eagle’s powerful talons, as if its gothic appearance weren’t already intimidating enough.
The rear talons are actually bigger than the claws of a grizzly bear and measure 5 inches in length.
Because of its incredible strength, it should not come as a surprise that the Harpy Eagle is at the very top of its food chain.
They have more than sufficient strength to pick up small animals weighing up to 17 pounds because they are able to conserve their energy.
These eagles are known for not making much noise while hunting and will often remain still for long periods of time while perched on a branch in the hope that prey will eventually pass by.
As a result of the destruction of their natural habitat in the rainforest, harpy eagles are becoming increasingly difficult to spot across Latin America.
