Vultures


Vultures can look pretty gross and scary sometimes, mostly because of their head with no feathers on it.

They don't have feathers because vultures eat carrion which means dead animals.
Since the meat they're eating may be old and kind of nasty,
they don't have feathers on their head so they don't get all messy and covered in old meat.

Even though vultures look scary, they only eat animals that are already dead,
so you don't have to worry about them attacking you.
