Martial Eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus)

One of the largest eagles with a wingspan of 8,5 feet (2.6 meters). They're a very aggressive predator and have been known to take down other birds as large as guinea fowl, baby baboons, lions cubs and small antelopes! I wish I had something in the picture for scale. A golden eagle has a wingspan of 7.6 feet (for comparison).
