I had the privilege to watch this juvenile Martial Eagle, for almost two hours , the time it took him to kill the Water Likkewaan

Ek was so gelukkig om hierdie arend dop te hou van die oomblik wat hy die likkewaan gevang het, en sy geveg, to hy later die likkewaan doodgemaak en ge-eet het!

Varanus Niloticus – Water Likkewaan The Nile Monitor, also called Water Leguaan, or River Leguaan, is a large member of the monitor lizard family. Nile Monitors can grow to about 4–6 feet in length with rare specimens exceeding 8 feet

TRUE EAGLES
Distinguished from all other raptors by their *fully feathered legs
Prey is killed either by impact or by crushing in powerful talons and flesh is torn by the well hooked bill.
Most eagles hunt while flying, wheeling effortlessly in rising warm air, and are seldom seen perched in fair weather.
