Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone. Also fact: when sufficiently threatened, they’ve been observed to deliberately puke on the threat.
this is the most badass thing i have ever heard of
posting this again because I mean look at it
Cassandra Peterson (aka Elvira, Mistress of the Dark) posed for the cover of Tom Waits’ 1976 album, Small Change. However, this story is apparently unverified as Peterson has since described it as “a giant mystery”, claiming that while she has no memory of the event, the picture looks enough like her that she feels “pretty sure” that it is.
