Bateleur Eagle

At A Glance

  • Conservation Status: Threatened
  • Location: Africa Rocks
  • ZOO ZONE: Africa Rocks

    Both predator and scavenger—with a vulture’s ability to feed on carrion, and an eagle’s ability to hunt and kill snakes and other prey with its feet—the bateleur eagle is both versatile and unique. Found in savannas and grasslands of sub-Saharan Africa, the bateleur eagle is known for its low, back-and-forth aerial searches for food on the land below, and its ability to descend in a tight spiral, plummeting toward the ground at high speed to retrieve its prey.
