More info: The lappet-faced vulture is named for the loose, fleshy, ear-like lappets that hang from the sides of its head. The bird is mainly a scavenger but also known to hunt, probably taking a variety of small reptiles, fish, birds, and mammals. Because of their dominating size, they will often scare off or steal from smaller vultures.

Vulture eggs and young are prey for other predators such as crows.
