ANIMAL FACTS - Raptors
Wedge-tailed Eagles are Australia's largest raptor. Their wingspans can reach over two and a half metres and body weights of up to six kilograms make them the largest predator of our skies.
Raptors are identified as Birds of Prey that capture their food using their feet. They have three distinguishing features:
- large talons (or claws) used for hunting
- very keen eye sight to target prey
- sharp hooked beak for the tearing up of prey once caught
