The Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja), sometimes known as the American Harpy Eagle, is a Neotropical species of eagle. It is the largest and most powerful raptor found in the Americas, and among the largest extant species of eagles in the world. It usually inhabits tropical lowland rainforests in the upper (emergent) canopy layer. This species is an actively hunting carnivore. Its main prey are tree-dwelling mammals such as sloths, monkeys, coatis, porcupines, kinkajous, anteaters and opossums. Globally, The Harpy Eagle is considered Near Threatened by IUCN and threatened with extinction by CITES. The Harpy Eagle is considered critically endangered in Mexico and Central America, where it has been extirpated in most of its former range. It’s considered as Near Threatened or Vulnerable in most of the South American portion of its range.
