Verreaux’s Eagle
Verreaux’s Eagle is a large bird of prey found in parts of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. They can be recognized by their mostly black body plumage contrasted by a white back. The bird is sometimes known as the Black Eagle.

Verreaux’s Eagles are specialty feeders, dining almost exclusively on hyraxes, which are a type of small mammal. Hyraxes comprise up to 90% of the eagle’s prey, depending on the location and the current success of hyrax populations.
