Martial eagle with Guineafowl prey, Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga province
The Martial Eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus), is Africa's largest eagle and is the only member of the genus Polemaetus, a very large eagle, with a length of 76–96 centimeters, weight of 3.1–6.2 kilograms and a wingspan of 188–260 centimeters.
Generally, these birds are more abundant in protected areas such as Kruger National Park and Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa or Etosha National Park, in Namibia.
The guineafowl are native to Africa, but the Helmeted Guineafowl has been domesticated and both feral and wild-type birds have been introduced elsewhere.
