Wild Life Series
The Vulture from Schleich® WILD LIFE is a bird that is primarily known for feeding on carrion. The Vulture is a mature griffon vulture. It lives all over Europe, North Africa, and Asia. The bird of prey prefers living in open landscapes, on cliffs, or in gorges. It has reddish-brown plumage, gray-black wings, and an almost featherless neck with a ring of white down around it. Vultures are particularly important to the ecosystem. They eat dead animals that could otherwise spread disease.
