Golden eagles use their speed and sharp talons to snatch up rabbits, marmots, and ground squirrels. They also eat carrion, reptiles, birds, fish, and smaller fare such as large insects. They have even been known to attack full grown deer. Ranchers once killed many of these birds for fear that they would prey on their livestock, but studies showed that the animal's impact was minimal. Today, golden eagles are protected by law.

Bhutanitis lidderdalii | This amazing insect, also know as the Bhutan Glory, is a member of the swallowtail family. Those beautiful hindwing tails are typical of many members of the group, although the Bhutan Glory is considerably more exotic-looking than most swallowtails. It's thought that the bright, flapping hind wings draw the attention of predators, leading them to strike at the tails. The butterfly can survive quite well without the ends of its wings.
