Faces of Brevard Zoo. (aka My favorite Florida Attraction) The King Vulture. They have excellent eyesight and rely on it to watch out for other vultures that have spotted carrion. The king vulture’s sense of smell is not as good as that of other types of vultures, so they do not always use it to detect food. When it sees that other scavenger birds have discovered a meal, they shoot down from the sky and push the others out of the way. All of the other species vultures are quick to move aside for the “king.”
