The Great Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) is also known as the “monkey-eating eagle” because of its proclivity for, well, eating monkeys. But it also eats other animals, like flying lemurs, rats, snakes, and bats—it’s an apex predator, after all! This raptor is endemic to the rainforests of the Philippine islands and is one of the world’s heaviest eagle species, weighing in somewhere between 10 to 18 pounds. This bird can live as long as 60 years, but it’s currently classified as critically endangered and faces many threats, the biggest of which is loss of habitat due to deforestation.

‘Now I have to change subjects, the orchards having mostly lost their blossom’, Vincent wrote on 20 April 1888. By 25 April he had found a new source of inspiration: ‘As for me, I immediately stopped doing paintings and I’ve carried on with a series of pen drawings.’ He began to work in the Japanese drawing style, with simple, supple lines.
