Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja) - Panama; has a wingspan of up to 7 ft and talons that can grow as big as grizzly bear paws; it can swoop up to 50 mph. Literally eats sloths and monkeys for breakfast. Each nestring pair of harpy eagles requires about 7sq mi of rainforest in which to hunt, so they're not getting enough to eat these days.
Harpy Eagle at L.A. Zoo // by Gamma Infinity. Harpy Eagles live in tropical /subtropical climates & are bigger than most other eagles. This particular one, a male, weighs about 10 pounds. He's a growing boy, and already dwarfs the typical American bald eagle. He swallows rats whole at feeding time. Harpy Eagles were nearly extinct but have been bred and released into the wild, and are now making a comeback.
