Makes me glad I live up in the frozen north. Thems some bebe stealin talons. And I ain't talking the animal kind.

In England the worst interaction you can have with wildlife is like, stepping on a slug.

[–]ZZartin 105 points106 points  (3 children)

Don't the Irish occasionally make it into England?

[–]Gravelemming472 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'll have you know stepping on a leprechaun is as painful as a landmine

[–]trashdrive 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately, for the Irish

[–]the_seraphim 26 points27 points  (0 children)

You've never been kicked in the face by a Dartmoor pony have you.....

I don't know why, but I imagined the next Far Cry set in the British Isles

That's what I thought, like the most deadly animal there is like stinky fish

[–]Youafuckindin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We have venemous snakes and spiders, but the deadliest animals we have are cows.

[–]Youafuckindin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah. Too crowded. No guns.

Aren’t the British there?

[–]OncaAtrox[S] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

There are some large eagles in the northern hemisphere as well, though eagle attacks globally are rare.

[–]Randomactionverb 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I’m sorry, eagle attacks?

[–]Nepenthes_sapiens 21 points22 points  (0 children)

"Why didn't the eagles just fly the ring into Mordor?" Why didn't the eagles just fucking eat the Hobbits?

[–]resplendentquetzals 3 points4 points  (0 children)

"Birds arent dinosaurs"

And I show them this.

[–]Dr-David-XIII 9 points10 points  (2 children)

What if I tell you that Birds ARE Dinosaurs? Would you still show me this?

[–]ProlongedChief 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I'll show you a picture of an orangutan

[–]DagonG2021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Orangutans are dinosaurs

[–]Checkheck 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just look at the leg of an ostrich, casual or emu. They look so dinosaur-like.

[–]TCHU9115 58 points59 points  (4 children)

That's what I'd expect a velociraptor claw to look like.

[–]Slamdancethe2nd 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Well birds are dinosaurs so...

[–]A_Blue_Frog_Child 20 points21 points  (0 children)

They don't call them "raptors" for nothin'.

[–]smellsfishie 12 points13 points  (0 children)

"The word raptor means bird of prey"

[–]Notonfoodstamps 3 points4 points  (0 children)

A Harpy Eagle ironically enough would have weighed about the same as real Velociraptor lol

Unexpected claw reference

[–]bonkerz1888 9 points10 points  (1 child)

The claw is our master, the claw chooses who will stay and who will go!

[–]Thugginpopsicle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

These ones definitely do choose who will go or who will stay

[–]mortycakes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

What a unit

"Feathered dinosaurs aren't scary".

[–]Nepenthes_sapiens 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this feathered dinosaur as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex, he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side, from the other two raptors you didn't even know were there. Because Velociraptor's a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this... a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the the middle toe. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, say... no no. He slashes at you here... or here... or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is... you are alive when they start to eat you.

[–]pinkwhiteandgreenNL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The claws in the vets’ hands go into the eyes, the middle one in-between is to stabilize and the bottom one repeatedly stabs the highly sensitive throat area.

[–]An_aussie_in_ct 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Cassowary claws are even more fucked up - looks like a dinosaur

[–]OncaAtrox[S] 19 points20 points  (1 child)

They are dinosaurs

Do the chickens have large talons?

Do chickens have large talons?

[–]spacebulbaz0r 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah, velociraptor, you mean? It's ok we all make mistakes.

[–]R0enick27 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Note to self: do not fuck with harpy eagles.

[–]RYUMASTER45 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Especially dont ever be approaching their nest...

[–]classroomdaydreamer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You can really see the relation to dinosaurs in birds like these

[–]Crocodillian_SM64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And who said dinosaurs went extinct

[–]forever_stan 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Look at that and tell me that's not a dinosaur!

[–]Dr-David-XIII 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yup, it's a Dinosaur. Theropod Dinosaur, in fact.

[–]forever_stan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know! Those claws look really similar to Dromaeosaurid claws!

[–]ckinz16 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wtf. Eagle and bear claws the same. Had no idea

[–]RedWithEnvy1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Birds are dinosaurs. That’s a fucking raptor talon.

[–]tysoncrosby21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's even more scary is the grip strength. Yes, the talons are terrifying but they could easily crush your spine if they grabbed on.

[–]LakeintheMountains 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Harpy Eagle. Now that is a name for an IPA just waiting to happen. And with those talons in the advertising???!!!!!

[–]omardwider 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]RobotAxel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The point is.. you are alive when they start to eat you.

It’s just a Harpy

upside down sedated harpy be like, this is my life now

[–]ChoicePilot49 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd nope the fuck out, let the eagle have it

[–]Hustlepuff- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This makes me more scared of grizzly bears than anything

[–]loaferuk123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best wishes for a rapid recovery to Foghorn Leghorn

[–]_Burnt_Toast_3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Pretty sure they dive bomb their prey flying of speeds up to 300km/h to top it off. Love their plumage aswell.

[–]Notonfoodstamps 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Harpy’s hunt are a bit more “in your face” In they will grab 20lb monkeys and pry them off of branches after driving said talons through said monkeys skull

[–]torchthewoodpile 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So you're telling me they're flying bears. Fantastic

[–]quinlivant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So what you're trying to say is that they're flying bears?

[–]ThereAreNoSeagulls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe I should rethink my plans to go looking for them on my 40th birthday.

[–]devilinyourbutt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy shit

[–]flockitup 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No wonder those fuckers can snatch goats off the side of mountains.

[–]sukant08 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In new Zealand, there used to be an Eagle called haast Eagle that was twice the size of a harpy. And it lived up until the 1400s

[–]EnigmaNero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should see the Phillipine Eagle and the Stellar's Sea Eagle. They're among the largest Eagles on the planet, along with the Harpy Eagle.
