"Here I am, dear, waiting for you"
A crowned eagle (Stephanoaetus coronatus) brings a snake home to its mate. Snakes are some of the smaller prey that crowned eagles hunt. They routinely eat bushbuck (a mid-sized antelope) and large monkeys.
While most birds of prey have a breeding cycle that lasts around 6 months, the crowned eagle’s breeding cycle lasts more than 500 days.
