This eagle is the largest eagle in the world. And it eats macaques. It stands over 3 feet tall and weighs almost 10 pounds. It is endangered, and lives in the Philippines (duh). They now estimate around 200 left in the wild. They lay only one or two eggs a year, like many raptors.

Status: Critically Endangered
