#MaraMondays - #DidYouKnow - #Vultures are the only #Scavenger that will never hunt for their food? They feed only on other carnivore’s kills or carcasses. They are organized in a hierarchy by which each type of vulture has a time and a turn to eat. #LappetFacedVultures are the most aggressive type and will usually be the ones to open a carcass thanks to their sharp beaks. Being this beneficial to lower-hierarchy vultures.
This #BlackBackedJackal , another scavenger of the savanna, was not going to let go of what he had and he was willing to put up a fight with this large #LappetFacedVulture ! And he got his share, fare and square.
