The largest known eagles species to have ever lived is the now extinct Haast’s Eagle of New Zealand. It had a wingspan of about 2.6-3 m (8’6″-9’10”), similar to some living eagles species such as the Golden Eagle and Steller’s Sea Eagle. It is believed females weighed 10-15 kg (22-33 lb) while males weighed 9-12 kg (20-26 lb). However, the current largest eagle species are 40% smaller in body size compared to the body size of Haast’s Eagle.
The Haast Eagle became extinct around 1400 AD when its food source was depleted and habitat cleared.
The biggest eagle in the world today is the philippine monkey eating eagle. The philippine monkey eating eagle weighed up to 20 lbs, and was 3 ft tall. Its wings spanned 7 ft in length, and the eagle was 3.5 ft long from beak to tail.
