Griffon Vulture - Gyps fulvus
Vultures are amazing raptors who are the "cleanup crew" of their surroundings. They have an incredible sense of smell which helps them locate carcasses. They also have an unusual defense against predators... when feeling in danger they will vomit at/on the predator. I have heard that their vomit smells worse than any skunk!
- The griffon vulture is a big old-world vulture belonging to the Accipitridae tribe of birds of prey.
- Griffon vultures have a life expectancy of 40 to 50 years.
- Griffon vultures cannot sing. Instead, they can only make basic noises like grunts and hisses.
