Meet Jumper!

Meet Jumper, a Verreaux’s (Black) Eagle who came to Daktari last week. Jumper had a broken wing and had to have most of it amputated. Although he cannot fly, he is still very quick on the ground as he jumps around his cage, hence his name!!

The children were really excited to meet him but a little bit nervous because of his size.  Jumper is about 60cm tall and has VERY big talons.  He is a brilliant edition to the orphanage as we have never had a black eagle before and the children can study his behavior at close hand.
