The business end of a raptor

From the smallest falcon to the biggest eagle, raptors are fierce and aggressive predators. Their weapon of choice, their talons, are able to put a vise-like grip on their prey, ripping and puncturing as they sink in. If you ever get a chance to see one up close, you can’t help but be struck by these meat hooks and when you do, you begin to appreciate the damage they can do.
