In full flight, all wings spread, the Eagle has an impressive size, which earned him the nickname of Golden Eagle. He is today one of the two largest raptors in the world. It has a dark and uniform plumage, powerful talons that end with sharp claws to hunt, and a hooked beak. Its visual acuity 8 times higher than that of a human being, allows him to spot his prey from high up in the sky. In captivity the Eagle has a life expectancy close to 45 years!
