Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal

This is like the most exciting discovery I’ve come across for some time now.
Murder, mystery and mayhem with a detective-flapper in my latest TV obsession: Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries!  Kinda like a flapper-era Rizzoli and Isles, really, as Miss Fisher has a best-friend-physician whose professional opinion she seeks out from time to time.
What a riot!
(Season 1 is available on Netflix, Americans!)

And read the books, guys.

YES.
Read the books.
I binged on all 20 in less than four months. Love them.

This is relevant to my interests.
As well as jenvanmeter's.
