ANIMAL FACTS - Raptors

Australia's largest raptor is the Wedge-tailed Eagle. It can have a wingspan of up to 2.7 metres. In the world of eagles, only three others exceed this amazing wingspan: the Stella Eagle (Asia), the Golden Eagle (North America) and the Bald Eagle (North America).

Raptors are identified as Birds of Prey that capture their food using their feet. They have three distinguishing features:

  • large talons (or claws) used for hunting
  • very keen eye sight to target prey
  • sharp hooked beak for the tearing up of prey once caught
