Wildebeest and Eagle

When this baby wildebeest becomes a grandfather, he's going to be the most annoying grandfather in the world, always going on about the time that he got attacked by lions and crocodiles at the same time. But I think he's earned it.

And then of course, my favorite bird on earth, just because of what it can do: the Golden Eagle.


First, it can kill a goat:

But the way it brings down a deer is simply unreal:

Wasn't it though? You could probably find one that shows a giant centipede eating bats if you google it. It hangs from cave roofs and grabs them as they fly by.

I'm glad your siblings like them. Would I be right in guessing that the twins in particular were delighted? Or did it venture up the age range?
