The Philippine Eagle is around as tall as Prince (5ft 2in) with a wingspan of Shaquille O’Neal (7ft).  It could easily eat the American Eagle for merienda, but tends to catch monkeys, deer, fruitbats and small pigs.  Without predators, it was able to reach this impressive size over the eons, but is currently numbering around just 180-500 in the wild; we visited the Philippine Eagle Foundation in Malagos, Mindanao to be in its presence.  They are doing magnificent work in reforestation, breeding and education projects; think about donating or adopting as a Christmas gift this year..
