A large Lappet-Faced Vulture feeds from a carcass. This is a large and aggressive species of vulture, quite happy to steal food from another species. They will frequently lower their heads and charge other birds (both of the same and different species) to chase them away, however they back down in the face of the nasty Marabou Stork.
