The arrival of six endangered vultures at Houston Zoo is the talk of the town. These new additions will take your breath away.
Two cape vultures, one Ruppell’s griffon vulture, and three hooded vultures make up this committee. These three kinds of vultures are all Old World Vultures. Despite their similarities, they have different characteristics.
Vultures are not the most attractive birds, but they are the most dangerous. As a result, they must never be underestimated. They know how to flaunt their extraordinary abilities.
The wingspan of a Cape Vulture may reach up to 8.5 feet. Aside from that, they are one of the biggest vultures from the ancient world. Chiku, a one-year-old girl, is the committee’s lone female member. She traveled all the way from the Alligator Farm Zoological Park in St. Augustine.
On the other side, there’s this adorable three-year-old boy named Nazgul, who hails from Alburquerque Biological Park and has the perfect name for his personality.
Rüppell’s griffon vultures have an impressive 8-foot wingspan. They are, in reality, the world’s highest flying birds. Isn’t it fantastic? Bruce is the committee’s oldest and most experienced member. In fact, this qualifies him as the clan’s smartest member. He was a visitor from the Dallas Zoo.
The hooded vultures, on the other hand, are smaller. Males in this species are also typically smaller than females. That’s a fascinating truth. Chiku shares a zoological park with Buzzy and Dizzy. This isn’t the first time they’ll run into each other.
Flaps is a six-year-old vulture with a hood. This fascinating bird has flown all the way from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park to its eventual destination.
The zoo’s bar has been raised by these savages. Furthermore, these ruthless beings are interesting to see from afar. However, do not touch them or attempt to feed them with your hands.
Last but not least, please extend a hearty greeting to these folks.
