Sarcoramphus papa
The King Vulture in Belize
Sarcoramphus papa translates to 'Father of the coffin'.
The King vulture eats the eye balls of the dead first. All the other vulture species wait until he is finished to have their share of the carrion.

The pouch below his chest is an extended stomach. When he eats meals are far between and he gorges himself using the extra room of this pouch. local lore has it that he throws up on you if you get to close but in reality he regurgitates the contents of the stomach to enable him to fly away by dropping the load that is preventing his take off.
