What bird of prey has the largest talons?



  1. 0 Votes

    The experts all seem to agree that the Harpy’s Eagle has the longest, strongest talons. This native of Central and South America boasts claws larger than a grizzly bear’s: up to 5 inches (13 cm) long. Their legs are also an impressive size, as wide as a small child’s wrist. They are not the largest bird of prey; that would be the Andean condor, but Harpy’s Eagles are regarded as the heaviest and most powerful birds.
