Egyptian vultures (Neophron percnopterus) are an endangered species of Old World vulture that has been observed using tools. They will throw rocks at large, thick-shelled eggs of other species to crack them open, and can walk hundreds of meters away from an egg to find a suitable rock.

A vulture is a scavenging bird of prey. The New World vultures include the California condor and the Andean condor; the Old World vultures include the birds that are seen scavenging on carcasses of dead animals on African plains. Some traditional Old World vultures (including the bearded vulture)

Heyne had noticed a few signs she had recognized from the time her sister was pregnant. First, she had missed her moonblood, Then her breast had gotten tender and swollen. And she had been nauseous in the mornings.

She decided to go to the Maester with her suspicions. And he had confirmed it. She was in fact pregnant. She moved to Marak’s solar where she knew he would be.

She knocked on the door, before saying: β€œMarak, it is Heyne I wish to speak with you”

[Wildlife Wednesday] Old World Vultures: Essential to the Environment (/r/AntiPoaching x-post)

Welcome to another Wildlife Wednesday brought to you by /r/AntiPoaching where we highlight a species (or in this case, an entire family) that are currently or historically poached. These species may also be legally hunted in some areas, or killed as a result of human-wildlife conflict. Last week we featured the environmentally vital scavengers in the hyaenidae family which includes the Hyena and Aardwolf.


Old World Vultures

There are 16 species of Old World Vultures (and a variety of sub-species) named for residing within Europe, Asia, and Africa, which are in the family Accipitridae. There are also species referred to as New World vultures which are thought to be a result of convergent evolution where species with different forms or function developed capabilities similar to other species.

All wildlife that feed on carrion, and especially old or rotten meat, provide a vital service to their local ecology, with Hyena being a common example. And when it comes to birds there are several species of Old World vultures that provide an incredible role in lowering the spread of diseases, such as rabies, and bacteria in their environment. Their most profound capability is their digestive system which is capable of neutralizing anthrax, a naturally occurring bacterium that is better known for its use as an infectious biological weapon. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control anthrax is "most common in agricultural regions of Central and South America, sub-Saharan Africa, central and southwestern Asia, southern and eastern Europe, and the Caribbean."

In some cultures these birds of prey with unparalleled responsibility are elevated to a mystical or spiritual status. In the Himalayas vultures are part of traditional funeral practice called a Sky Burial, where scavengers, and particularly birds of prey, are responsible for assisting the human’s spirit to achieve reincarnation. According to some traditional beliefs in southern Africa vultures are capable of flying so high that they can see into the future and grant these visions to humans. This became a problem for vulture conservation during the 2010 FIFA World Cup as vultures were poached for
