The Harpy Eagle is a carnivore. It hunts and scavenge during the day because they are diurnal creatures.
Harpy Eagles feed primarily on animals that live in the trees. For example the Harpy eats animals such as sloths, monkeys, opossums, and some reptiles and birds. They are highly maneuverable fliers and strike their prey after a rapid pursuit through the trees. The Harpy dives down onto its prey and catches it with outstretched, clawed feet.
