Posted by

Martial Eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus)

The martial eagle is a large eagle native to sub-Saharan Africa."

"One of the largest and most powerful species of booted eagle, it is a fairly opportunistic predator that varies its prey selection between mammals, birds and reptiles. Its hunting technique is unique as it is one of few eagle species known to hunt primarily from a high soar, by stooping on its quarry."
