Birds of Prey Zoological Poster - Raptores
A bird of prey (a term including Owls, Hawks, Falcons, Buzzards, Vultures and Eagles) is also called a “raptor”, which comes from the Latin term “rapere”, which means “to take by force”. The hawk is one of the most recognizable birds of prey and is known for its keen vision, talons, and razor sharp beaks. Depending on its environment, a bird of prey is armed with distinctive features that make it a highly effective predator. The owl, for example, has specialized feathers that make it virtually silent in flight. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.
Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor.
