The animal of the day is the Turkey Vulture. (Did you know: The Turkey Vulture often defecates on its own legs, using the evaporation of the water in the feces and/or urine to cool itself, a process known as urohidrosis [Storks are also known to do this].
Its primary form of defense is regurgitating semi-digested meat, a foul-smelling substance which deters most creatures intent on raiding a vulture nest.
That stuff is also acidic so it’ll sting if the predator is close enough to get the vomit in its face or eyes.
Oh! And they make CRAZY sounds!
