The Vulture is a scavenger. It is build to this very important job of eating dead animals. The Griffin Vulture has a very long neck that allows him to probe the depths of the carcass. His head and neck covered briefly with plume which is not getting dirty like all the feathers. The Vulture’s stomach is particularly strong, digestive juices neutralize the poisons and rot material in the dead bodies. Vultures are sociable birds, nesting in colonies on cliffs.
