Next message: Rachel Toney: "challenge question 1"
Eagles carry their prey with their talons instead of their bills for
reasons of survial and for the daily meals for example:
* If they need to scare others from their nest
while its bringing food for the young ones.
* Its talons are sharper so if the creature
it is carry is still alive somehow, its talons will make sure it is
ready to be eaten later.
* The talons have a better grip on slippery
* If the creature is too big for the bill
itself it has two feet with talons and spicules.
