Griffon Vulture Chick by Mouselemur Griffon Vulture Chick by Mouselemur
Never before have I seen a Griffon Vulture Chick.

To imagine, I might not have even seen it if I had stuck to the path set out, since it wasn't in it's normal habitat with all the other Griffon Vultures.

No, the chick and his parents were set between the Tapirs and the Marabou Stork.

There wasn't even a "shield" to keep them in, as if the mere presence of the fragile chick would keep them to the ground.

He was so adorable, though you might not make that out from a plucked naked scavenger.


Made it in April, 2012 @ Zoo Duisburg, Germany

September 7th of 2013, is Vulture Awareness day. *quaddie made a lovely feature consisting of all sorts of magnificent vulture photos, and this one of part of it, too! So go check it out ;) fav.me/d6lbnnv

Definitely :D It was the first Griffon Vulture Chick I've ever seen, it was great that they sat so close to the path :) Both parents stuck close protecting the little one.
