Andean Condor
What on Earth?

Family: New World vultures
Habitat: South America

There are plenty of adorable, colorful and bright animals that absolutely fascinate us. And then there’s the Andean condor. Why do we find it so ugly? These animals are incredibly important for the balance of nature because they clear away carrion like street sweepers keeping everything clean. They do the “dirty work” none of us want to do. But: they’re still as ugly as sin ;)
