Want One For a Pet?

Vulture sign

Vultures

We took these photos at the Everglades. The vultures were hanging around on the footpath and gave me the creeps. They’re ugly and were a bit smelly. I preferred the alligators.

Would you like one of these for a pet?

  1. I don’t think I’d want one for a pet but I wouldn’t mind seeing them in the wild. I like birds just fine, but big birds make a big mess. lol


  2. It’s great seeing them in the wild.


  3. I actually would! Vultures are smart and learn your routine, if you go for a walk at the same time every day, they’ll check in on you — and get upset when you’re not there when you should be.


  4. I didn’t know that, Susan. These ones seemed quite friendly, but we didn’t get too close!


  5. I don’t know much bout vultures. I think they are carrion birds, right? The ones that fly about looking line a sign of death when it’s eminent?


  6. I’d have a vulture in my backyard any time…if the alternative was an alligator!


  7. Would I like a vulture for a pet? Um…no thanks. I’d rather have a hawk or a falcon.
