I always thought vultures were cool, but now I'm really impressed. Especially the part about intestinal acids that destroy disease bacteria. When they clean up a carcass, they really clean it up. Thanks, Cher, for posting this.

Great story Cher. Thank You. I love our vultures (known as Turkey Buzzard)--they are beautiful when they just ride the wind, amazing to watch. I don't get too close to them though, they are a little odoriferous!!!!
