King Vulture - Sarcoramphus papa

The King Vulture, Sarcoramphus papa (Falconiformes - Cathartidae), is a species of vulture found in the southern part of Mexico and throughout Central and South America to northern Argentina.

The most noticeable difference between king vultures and other vultures is that they are largely covered with white plumage. King vultures are large birds, their wingspan can reach up 1.98 m. Their bare head, neck, beak and muttle are red, orange and yellow, with very striking eyes that are straw, white or silver in color. Their beaks have a hooked tip and cutting edges, which are very strong. There are no differences between the males and females of this species.

Such an unsettling, thoughtful, and important episode of WNYC’s New Tech City on how the social web changed eating disorders – a phenomenon that belongs with the 100 ideas that changed the web.

A striking factoid from the story – anorexia has the highest mortality rate of all mental disorders.
