Raptors, birds of prey are well equipped to snatch and kill, as this Eurasian Eagle owl's talons prove.

All raptors have magnificent weapons in their keen eye sight, sharp hearing from ears that are located at variant angles to capture the slightest rustle, and sometimes silent flight.

However, they do not have a sense of smell, allowing them to capture skunks.

    Wow, what lethal claws!!! I often wonder if an Owl or other big bird, like we have around here, captured the little black and white bunny that visited my yard, it just disappeared one day.
