Description

The harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) is a bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. It can be found from southern Mexico to Brazil and it is the largest raptor on the American continent. It is a powerful hunter that typically feeds on sloths, monkeys, opossums, or reptiles such as iguanas. The harpy eagle is thought to live between 25 and 35 years in the wild.

The caption reads in the original French: La grande harpie, Harpya destructor.
