Egyptian Vulture

Neophron percnopterus

The Egyptian vulture is a member of the ‘Old World’ vulture family and is closely related to birds of prey such as eagles and hawks.



Size: 54 - 70cm
Weight: 1.6 - 2.2kg



Egyptian vultures live in open country in Africa, Asia and Europe. They fly high, observing the ground, and shadow herds of game and cattle.



Egyptian vultures eat carrion (dead animals). They also eat fruit, plants, insects, small vertebrates and eggs.



Females lay 1 or 2 eggs in a large nest made out of pieces of old rags, hair, or fur. These are incubated for 39-45 days



The Egyptian vulture is threatened in the wild by habitat destruction and poisoning of their food by lead bullets and medicines used on commercial cattle.
