Striated Caracara is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.

Appearance

Striated Caracara has amber eyes, very long messy black hair with the ends projecting sideways and small gray spots at the tips, including the bangs at the side of her face. Her middlemost bang is white in color, presenting a small black and gray spot at the end, and a yellow line at the start, with a shape resembling a beak. She has two large extended black wings, with brown and gray lines, and a gray colored bird tail that fades to dark gray and black towards the bottom.

In Real Life

Also known as Forster's Caracara or "Johnny Rook" by the local population, the Striated Caracara is a bird of prey that can be found in very southern islands of South America (Tierra del Fuego around Cape Horn) and the Falkland Islands. This bird lives in rocky coasts, open lowlands and coastal mountain slopes, sharing its habitat with Rockhopper Penguins and other seabirds. Their plumage is almost black in color, while the legs and lores are orange and the neck is flecked with gray. Their hooked bill is gray in color, with orange-yellow cere.

Those birds are scavengers, usually hunting in groups, feeding primarily on carrion, dead adults and chicks of colonial seabirds, and attacking weak or stranded animals like sheep. As this type of food is scarce, they soon disperse in search of carrion and small animals, including invertebrates.

They are fearless of humans and are known to attack campsites while searching for food. Striated Caracaras are naturally very intelligent and curious birds. They were heavily persecuted in the past for their ability to kill newborn lambs but are now officially protected by Falkland Islands law. Their very restricted habitat makes this bird the rarest raptor in the world.
