The golden eagle is found over most of the world and it usually eats small mammals.
Sometimes, "eagle" can just mean any large hawk; as a group, eagles are not closely related to one another.
Almost all eagles are carnivores. This means that they eat meat from other animals, including fish, rabbits, snake and squirrels. Birds that eat meat are also known as birds of prey. Eagles are birds of prey, and so are vultures and falcons. Eagles use their strong talons to catch and grab their food, and they use their sharp beaks to help them tear into their meat. Even though most eagles are carnivores, the African Vulturine Fish-Eagle mostly eats oil palm fruits.
