There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The Harpy eagle is the most powerful raptor in the World with females weighting from 6 to 9 kgs and males from 4 to 7 kgs, body length 89 to 105 cm and wing span 180 to 200 cm, they have huge talons that measure up to 7 cm long.
The Harpys major prey are, with out a doubt, the tree dwelling mammals, the two toed sloth and the Howler monkey.
