A Lappet-faced Vulture chase White-backed Vultures away from an Impala carcass. (Kruger National Park, South Africa). It was very difficult to get good photos at this sighting due to the amount of dust and the tall grass.
The Lappet-faced Vulture has a powerful beak and other vultures often rely on the Lappet Lappet-faced Vulture to tear open the skin of a carcass. This vulture is between 78 and 115 cm tall and has a wingspan of 3 meters. The Lappet-faced Vulture is endangered in South Africa.
