Secretary Bird: An African Endemic
The Secretary Bird is a terrestrial raptor endemic to Africa. With a hooked bill and long legs -- looking part-eagle, part-crane -- it delicately picks its way through the grass searching for prey items, and promptly stamps them to death (including the deadliest of snakes) with hard pads on its scaled feet. Quite formidable!
