Eagles are birds of prey and clever hunters. There are many different kinds of eagles all over the world. They can be found in North America, South America, Africa, Europe and Australia. No eagles live in Antarctica because it is too cold for them and there is not enough food.
(Appearance – What they look like)
Martial Eagles are the biggest eagles that live in Africa. They have dark feathers on their head, on their throat and underneath their wings. Their breast and belly are white with dark spots. When these eagles stretch both their wings out wide, their wing span measures two metres sixty centimetres. Like all eagles, Martial Eagles have sharp eyes and good eye sight. They also have strong feet and sharp talons.
(Habitat – Where they live)
Some Martial Eagles live in African deserts while others live in forests. They can also make their homes in the African savanna.
(Diet – What they eat)
When Martial Eagles are hunting, they fly very high in the sky and look at the ground very carefully with their sharp eyes. As soon as they see a snake, jackle, antelope or a Monitor Lizard, they swoop down fast. Quickly, they grab the prey with their strong feet and talons and carry it back to their nest to eat.
(Fun / Interesting Facts)
Martial Eagles usually live for 12 to 14 years. The female eagles only lay one egg every two years, so not many new Martial Eagles chicks hatch. This means these amazing birds of prey need to be protected, so they will survive.
