ANIMAL FACTS - Raptors
Andean Condors prefer open grasslands and alpine areas up to 5,000m (16,000ft) in elevation and in rocky mountain areas were they can spot carrion from the air.
Raptors are identified as Birds of Prey that capture their food using their feet. They have three distinguishing features:

- very keen eye sight to target prey
- sharp hooked beak for the tearing up of prey once caught
