Fact of the Day: Strong But With Few Homes

The Phillipine Eagle is considered one of the most powerful and largest birds on the planet, and with diet that can range up to fairly large mammals it certainly might be the best of it's kind. However while it may be strong in nature, when humans started tearing down forests for personal use, it had dwindled down to a very endangered species when they lost much of their habitat.

  5. Well it is part of natural selection that animals become extinct but it's sad that we influenced it.

    1. I guess it would fall under artificial selection, well at least indirectly.
