Golden Eagle showing the magnificence of its head and beak. This is a photograph.
The eagle can see something the size of a rabbit running at one to three miles away. Its eye is similar in size to a human eye. But because their eye is so large relative to their size, it fills much of the skull. Each eyeball is fixed in place by ringlets of bone. As such, eagles cannot move their eyeballs within the socket like humans. But they take advantage of 14 neck vertebrae (twice that of humans) to rotate their heads 210 degrees in one direction, two and a half times farther than humans.
