Andean Condors, one of the world's magnificent vultures, inhabit the coast of Peru and Argentina. They can also be found in the Andes Mountains
These vultures are covered with black feathers. The upper side of the wings is white. The collar of the condors is circled with a layer of white feather. Male Andean Condors have a fleshy crest on the head. When these creatures spread their wings, the wingspan could reach up to 10 feet (3m). On an average Andean Condors weigh about 26 pounds (12kg).
These condors feed on dead animals, and fish.
The females lay their eggs in caves, holes, and among boulders. They reproduce every 2 years. On an average female Andean Condors lay 1 - 2 eggs. The average incubation period is 50-60 days.
Human's destruction of their habitat, and food source are their main reasons for nearing extinction. If humans don't destroy their needs, they shoot or poison them.
