Did you know that the Philippine Eagle is actually an endangered species? Its population is believed to be down to the last 200. Hunting, loss of habitat, and pollution are three of the biggest reasons why this species of eagle is now dwindling in number.
This monkey-eating eagle stands tall and ferocious at three feet or about one meter and can weigh up to four kilograms (about nine pounds). It is considered as the biggest of all surviving eagles based on its wing surface and length.
Scientific name: Pithecophaga jefferyi
