Bateleur Eagle
Terathopius ecaudatus

The Bateleur eagle is the most famous of the snake eagles. Bateleur is French for “tightrope-walker”. This name was probably chosen because of its distinctive aerial acrobatics. Its pitch black feathers with white under the wings, bright red face and legs and black beak are characteristic markings. Unlike most creatures, female Bateleur eagles are larger than males.

This is what she had to say about “Snake Hunter”

“This is my all time favorite piece on redbubble. This was a very difficult choice to make!!! I have such a passion and love for nature but most of all……the birds of prey. So I gravitated in that direction. The piece I chose is of a bird of prey. It’s titled “Snake Hunter” by bobbymcleod. I love this brilliant shot and have chosen this to be my favorite. One reason being, that you don’t see many shots of these eagles. And secondly, these eagles like so many birds of prey……. have such power/determination in their eyes and they are just so incredibly beautiful!! Bobby has captured all of those elements in his brilliant photo of this stunning Bateleur Eagle.”

Thanks again Deb!
