Lappet-faced or Arabian Vulture

Torgos [tracheliotos or negevensis] (= Torgos tracheliotos) (Forster, JR 1796)

The lappet-faced vulture or Nubian vulture is an Old World vulture belonging to the bird order Accipitriformes, which also includes eagles, kites, buzzards and hawks. It is the only member of the genus Torgos. It is not closely related to the superficially similar New World vultures, and does not share the good sense of smell of some members of that group.
