Among the birds of prey around the world, there are none as mighty as the harpy eagle. This hulking creature is the largest bird in the bird kingdom and can grow up to 42 inches long.
The wingspan of a harpy eagle can reach a record 7-and-a-half feet.
Their massive talons are about 3-4 inches long, or the same size as a grizzly bear’s claws.
They use those talons to prey on and dismember primates.
These gigantic birds have specialized in hunting monkeys and sloths.
They snatch them from trees mid-flight.
