The Andean Condor is arguably the largest bird of prey in the world. It has a wingspan of up to 10 feet 10 inches. They are found primarily in South America in the Andes Mountains. The Andean Condor is primarily a scavenger, feeding on carrion. A scavenger eats the meat of animals that are already deceased.
The Andean Condor prefers to eat off of large carcasses such as deer and other large cattle. It is the national symbol of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Their numbers are steadily decreasing due to deforestation of their habitats. They are also being second-hand poisoned through the meat of poisoned carcasses killed by hunters. Hunters intentionally poison their kills (after removing the horns, etc) so that it will kill the scavengers flying overhead (the less scavengers in flight above, the less likely they are to be caught by local game wardens or other authorities).
