Caption: Pleistocene black vultures. Artwork of Pleistocene black vultures (Coragyps occidentalis) feeding on carrion two million years ago in what is today the western United States of America. This bird was very similar to today's American black vulture, but slightly larger with a wingspan of around 1.6 metres. It was a scavenger feeding on carrion. In the background are a pair of Camelops, true camels that resembled the slightly smaller Arabian camels of today.
