In Real Life

The King Vulture is a bird who lives in lowland forests normally located in southern Mexico and northern Argentina. An adult King Vulture has a mostly white body, with black parts around the neck and ends of wings. The head and neck have an interesting combination of black, red, and orange, making the bird easy to spot among others. Young King Vultures however, have an mostly dark body with the exception of some white parts of the body, and the head retaining it’s colorful design like the adult has. They are normally 71 to 81 cm long, with a wingspan of 170 to 200 cm.

The King Vulture is a carnivorous bird that feeds on anything from as small as fish to as big as cattle. As with other vultures, they can eat maggots and small bugs by using the side of their bill to scoop them up. They use their claws to tear skin and tendons from dead prey as a means of getting food from the animal. As with breeding, they tend to keep nests on high places such as cliffs or trees, as with many other birds. If they see a threat to their child in the nest, they will be attacked viciously by the King Vulture, using their talons and beak to attack the intruder.

The King Vulture is not currently endangered and is classified under the Least Concerned status, however their populations are decreasing. There is estimated to be around 600 to 7000 of the bird out in the wild as of 2014, however the numbers may have changed since then. King Vultures normally live up to 30 years in captivity, however out in the wild, they are currently unknown. There is no reasoning clear for their decline in populations, but as there is no drastic decreasing at the moment, there is no concern from the scientific community.
