Unlike its scavenging cousin, the Whisper vulture is a hunter, taking down rabbits and other small game with ease thanks to its speed and surprising agility. Hungry flocks of these birds of prey can even take down a human adult by sheer force of numbers.

Whisper vulture eggs are a delicacy, and those who can find and claim them can make a good amount of money selling them to merchants.

A mature Whisper vulture has an 8-foot-long wingspan and weighs 50 pounds.
