    I have one in mind. It is called "the Bonecracker" and has a 9 foot wingspan, and if it finds carcass, will wait until the vultures clean the meat off the bones. It will then take a bone, fly up in the air and drops it to break it open. This beautiful bird subsists 90% on bone marrow, and bone marrow alone. It has been said to have killed one of those ancient greek philosiphers by dropping a bone on what it thought to be a rock, but was the philosipher's head.
    Remind me of Adm,in and it's policies. Pic to follow.
