A Vulture's Life by Dezzoi A Vulture's Life by Dezzoi
"Aw, come off it. Things are right dead all over."

"You mean you wish they were!"


Obviously inspired by the vultures from the Jungle Book - just drew my vulture characters instead. c:

Characters to me (Dezzoi)

I am sure you did based off of this, but I must say it reminds me a lot of the "Beatles" vultures from the The Jungle Book :)

If you have to say, what is your favorite species of vulture? Are you ever gonna do some teratorns?

My favorite Vulture is the Lammergeier, but the Turkey Vulture and California Condor are a close second. :3
Well, I kind of base my condor character off a tertorn. She's like an abnormally large condor.

Yeah I noticed that. Oh did you know that the Madagascar Serpent-eagle and Polyboroides are related to the Lammergeier, Egyptian and Palm-nut Vulture?

Well, old world vultures are more closely related to eagles and hawks compared to the new world vultures who are related to storks, so, it doesn't surprise me. c:

But I thought N.W vultures were a basal lineage in Accipritiformes?

New World Vultures are in the Accipitriforms too but as Cathartidae rather than Accipitridae like the Old World vultures. People say that the new world vultures and old world vultures are prime examples of convergence evolution where two species adapt for the same purpose (in this case, eating already dead animals) and evolve into a similar body structure without having evolved from themselves, if that makes sense?
 New World vultures did not evolve from the old worlds, instead they evolved completely separate from them, probably from storks (unlike from eagles and hawks like the old world vultures did). It's weird, but that's what scientist think lol

Another example of convergence evolution is the Thylacosmulis and Smilodon. Thylacosmulis was a marsupial saber tooth and smilodon was a saber toothed feline - totally different family tree but both evolved for the same purpose.

I think people forget just how epic vultures are, they are just as big as some eagles and clean up the ecosystems so much! They're like our big, bad-ass janitors!

Makes me think about that story Tom Waits told about how Vultures have to throw up the meal they just ate so they can fly again.
