In terms of strength and speed, the harpy eagle is one of the most powerful eagles in the world. They are mainly found in tropical regions, thriving in rainforests and places with dense foliage. They are also carnivorous apex predators, always on the top of the food chain and feeding on smaller mammals such as sloths and monkeys. Their talons are the longest and sharpest of any eagle, and with them the harpy eagle is capable of lifting creatures equal to its body weight. With the use of their talons, the harpy eagle can usually overpower most threatening birds of prey found in other biomes, such as eagles and peregrine falcons. Despite their power, they are passive when it comes to attacking other creatures, waiting until they make the wrong move before swooping down to swiftly snatch them from the ground. They usually become hostile only when their nest or their young are threatened, often by unknowing humanoids.
