8. Bald Eagle
The biggest and baddest American raptor has excellent vision (seven times better than ours) and can spot prey over an area of three miles from 1,000-feet up. When in kill mode, bald eagles are practically fighter jets, with wingspans up to 7 feet and a top speed of 75 miles during dives. Eagles are also strong, able to carry up to four times their own weight while flying.
