WHAT ARE VULTURES?


Vultures are a bird prey and can found in many different parts of the world. They do not hunt their own prey, instead they wait for another animal like a lion to kill an animal and they come and feed on the pieces the lion doesn't want. The only meat they eat are from the muscles and vicera of their dead prey. Vultures make their nests in high places, anywhere but trees, to ensure that another predator does not kill their young. Their average weight tends to be about 15 pounds and their wingspan is often about eight feet.



Vultures often only have one young per season and the incubation period for their eggs lasts about 50 days. They also tend to live about 38 years in the wild and 42 in captivity. Their distended crops and gizzards can hold over 13 pounds of meat at a time so they can take it back to the nest to feed their young.

Unlike New World vultures that rely on a sense of smell, Griffon Vultures rely on vision to search for food. The short down covering the head and neck is easy to keep clean. Dozens of griffon vultures gather by pools of water to bathe and then stand with wings extended to dry out. Built for soaring flight, griffons may cruise for 6 or 7 hours and 100 miles looking for food. When one vulture drops to a carcass, others see it and congregate. It is not unusual to have 50 vultures waiting around a kill for a chance to feed. This relatively weak vulture depends on Lappet Faced Vultures or Maribou Storks to open up fresh carcasses.
