Harpy eagles are found in several areas of southern Mexico, Central America and South America. Harpy Eagle is the main prey monkeys, sloths, birds such as macaws birds, iguanas and sometimes boa.

Monkeys and sloth that developed in the tropical forests is the main victim of this eagle. However, sometimes harpie also attack other large birds, such as the fig parrot. In the nest harpie, the scientists also discovered the remains of aglouti (large rodents) and other mammals that live in soil. This indicates that the occasional harpie also fell to the ground.
