As the largest and most powerful birds of prey in the world, crowned eagles are some of the most dangerous creatures that can be found in the animal kingdom. While they may not be as fast as their fellow raptors, they make up for it in raw power and ferocity. On top of their massive talons capable of crushing even the strongest of bones, they are very aggressive in nature, viciously defending their territory from any creature that would dare step anywhere near their nest. Their main diet consists of small mammals like monkeys and sloths and they have even been known to attack humans without hesitation. They mainly reside in arid climates with woodlands that are situated next to a riverbank. Unless they want painful gashes to quickly riddle their bodies, adventurers usually respect the crowned eagle's territory and leave them alone.
