1st image:Tawny Eagle vs. Lappetfaced Vulture-1st image . These next 3 images depict an interesting and a rare sighting of a confrontation between a Tawny Eagle (L) and a Lappetfaced Vulture (R)--the largest of the African vultures--over a Thompson's Gazelle fawn. First, the Tawny takes a turn at trying to carry off the dead fawn, but the fawn is too heavy. See next image. [Serengeti, Tanzania].
