|The lappet-faced vulture (Torgos tracheliotos) is the largest and most powerful vulture in Africa, a huge bird with a 2.5 - 3 m wingspread. It is patchily distributed throughout much of Africa, but the species has become vulnerable, with an estimated overall population of only 9000 indiduals. In Namibia 86 were recently poisoned at once with strychnine because the farmers erroneously believed the scavengers were killing and eating their livestock.|
