Philippine eagle facts



  • Also known as the great Philippines eagle or monkey-eating eagle the Philippine Eagle is the world's  longest eagle of the eagle family
  • As an apex predator  ( a predator residing at the top of a food chain upon which no other creatures prey) , it was once called the Philippine Monkey -Eating Eagle because it was believed that it preyed only on monkeys.
  • With furthur observation it was concluded that it does hunt monkeys taking with whatever mean it can find. They have heavy legs yellow , with large powerful dark claws and the  prominent large high-arched deep beak is a bluish-grey and the fact that it doesn't exclusively dine on primate flesh doesn't make it any less terrifying
  • It was made the national bird of the Philippines on July 4, 1995. As a result of this ,  if anybody kills one they can look forward to spending a total of twelve years in prison.
