Osprey (Print)

from 15.00

Osprey's catch roughly a fish every four dives. The same studies estimate that an Osprey hunts for roughly only 12 minutes before catching a fish on average. Anyone who has ever thrown a line in the water knows just how exceptional that is. They owe this success rate in large part to a few characteristics that set them apart from most raptors. First, they have a reversible outer toe that allows them to grasp with two toes in front and two behind. They also have barbed pads on the soles of their feet that allow them to steadily grip slippery fish. If you've ever seen an Osprey dive for a fish, you'll notice that they dive head first for less wind resistance.
