This vulture glides effortless on the wind over the Arizona desert. It has an immense advantage as a predator; it can see a 3-foot carcass from over four miles away and smell prey from over a mile away. This gives it an immense range for finding and locating food; as food is always sparse in the dry deserts, the vulture is well equipped to be master of it’s environment. Added to this, its wing design, allows it to glide effortless for hours on the wind currents, and it can locate thermal rises to gain better height; this uses little energy, which in the heat and dry conditions is another advantage.
