EARTH A New Wild | Vultures Scavenge a Carcass (GRAPHIC) | PBS


http://pbs.org/earth-a-new-wild
Premieres Wednesdays February 4-25, 2015 on PBS

GRAPHIC WARNING: Not suitable for all audiences. Vultures are the ultimate scavengers. Always working in groups they can scavenge a carcass to the bone in 30 minutes. Their featherless heads and necks mean they can get neck deep in the carcass without getting their feathers caught on bones or soaked in blood. They can gorge on 20% of their body weight in one meal too.
