Vultures were a common species of bird.
Vultures were large birds with filthy feathers. Their main distinguishing feature was their featherless pink head.
Vultures were considered to be cowardly animals.
Vultures were scavengers, attacking prey only once it has died or collapsed from exhaustion. Vultures only attacked moving prey if in a group, and only if the prey was already near collapsing.
Vultures were usually encountered in warm areas, floating on updrafts over open spaces.
Vultures were carrion eaters and have developed the ability to consume infected, poisoned or rotting meat safely. They lived in flocks. A female vulture could lay up to four eggs at a time. The eggs were incubated over two months until they hatched. A young vulture could fly at four months of age.
