Vultures

$450.00
Vultures are a fascinating example of a scavenging way of life. Did you ever notice how there are no mammals that are exclusive scavengers? Scavenging is truly a lifestyle for the birds. This is because a successful scavenger must be able to cover extensive ground in search for food. Mammals simply can’t cover enough ground, while using minimal energy, as can birds that use energy-efficient soaring flight. Moreover, scavengers in flight can view large areas at once and also keep their eyes on other scavengers, who may descend and lead them to a meal. Vultures are one example of a group of animals evolving fascinating adaptations to exploit a new niche. *Note: as this is a collaborative product, each finished piece will look unique and different depending on the plastic sent by the customer.
