Genus Torgos

Torgos tracheliotos - It is not closely related to the superficially similar New World vultures, and does not share the good sense of smell of some members of that group. Like many vultures, it has a bald head. The pink coloration is a distinctive feature. The head is bald because a feathered head would become spattered with blood and other fluids, and thus be difficult to keep clean.

Order : Falconiformes
Family : Accipitridae
Genus : Torgos
