Vultures


Hello everyone here we are with another pretty tough creature this weeks creature is the vulture we all know that if you see a vulture around a dead creature is near by. This is because the vulture feed on the dead, doesn't matter that the meat is rotting, and contains dangerous bacteria that would make us very ill.

Some species can even sniff it out from quite a distance away. So why don't they get sick well because their stomachs are among the strongest in the world with their stomach juices a 100 times more acidic than ours. The acid is strong enough to digest bones or even metals, if they ate metal.

Vultures even eat animals that died of dangerous infections such as botulism and anthrax in fact by doing so they help remove them from our environment, keeping us safer.

Many vultures have bald heads, is this to allow them to stick their heads into dead animals without getting their feathers dirty and yuck.
