        Vulture Feeding Time-Lapse | EARTH A New Wild

        In this time-lapse video, watch an accelerated recording of white-rumped vultures as they feed on a carcass. Vultures have evolved adaptations to facilitate the ingestion and digestion of cattle carcasses, including a razor-sharp beak to cut through the tough hide and a feather-less head to avoid picking up residual traces of meat. Vultures are scavengers, meaning they feed on dead and decaying animals. Use this video to demonstrate scavenger behavior, illustrate animal adaptations, or explore the role that scavengers play within an ecosystem.
