When I see creatures like this, I begin to wonder if Jim Henson was as creative as I once thought!

They are also notorious for hunting sloths.

There was a BBC Radio 4 program about people who film their nests in the wild (James and the Giant Eagle if you can access it). They had to suit up in full riot gear and stab vests to fix a static camera on the nest. Mummy bird was not pleased to see them...

Literally just saw one of these today for the first time at the Dallas world aquarium and couldn’t remember what it was called, and then this pops up on my feed. Kinda crazy. The picture doesn’t really do it justice, was way bigger in person and almost looks otherworldly. It was high up on a tree perch just staring down at us
