My animal is the Harpy Eagle and it has several adaptations to help it catch and feed on their prey. Their vision is magnificent. They are able to see something smaller than an inch from almost 220 yards away. They are great swimmers and can fly 50 mph through the trees. Sadly our world is changing which is affecting the environment. Vegetation is being destroyed leaving less food for the Harpy Eagles. The sloths might be dying off which means less food for Harpy Eagles. The Harpy Eagles wings will get shorter. This means they can easily spot potential prey from far above the ground, where other birds wouldn't see it. Eagles also have a bony ridge above their eyes that minimizes glare from the sun. These adaptations greatly improve their hunting ability, helping them to find all the food they need
