I know I'm a little late for my post on Vulture Awareness Day which was on 7th September, but I hope the cartoon makes up for it! Did you know that the vulture's bald head has a purpose? It helps keep the head clean while feeding on rotting carcasses, the debris from which may otherwise stick to a feathered surface. With unique adaptations such as these, these janitors of nature are truly built for the job!
