Goliath Heron vs African Fish Eagle
- Published on: Saturday, February 16, 2019
- Battle of Titans! This is a great video clip showing the epic battle that happens on a daily bases between the Goliath Heron (the worlds largest heron which stands at about 4.5 ft (1.4 m) and has a wingspan of at least 7 ft (2 m) and the African Fish Eagle. The Goliath Heron is an excellent fisherman and the African Fish Eagle knows it. Once the Goliath Heron catches a fish it is vulnerable, and the African Fish Eagle swoops in to haze the heron which forces it to drop the fish. That's the eagles opportunity to snag the fish, but at high risk. If the eagle miscalculates it could be fatal to the eagle as the heron's dagger like beak could easily kill the eagle with one well placed thrust! Filmed in Kruger National Park, South Africa!
Thank you for visiting Brads World Reptiles YouTube channel! These different videos are a reflection of my passion for wildlife, wildlife conservation and my interest in creating educational opportunities about our natural world. Most of my life has been spent around domestic and exotic wildlife as a hobbyist, an animal curator, and a life science educator. This has created opportunities to meet some very interesting people, work with and observe some of our worlds most fascinating wildlife species, and enabled travel to some of the most remote places of our planet in over thirty different countries. As well, our facilities has been working with hundreds of varieties of exotic reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and arthropods that have been used in educational programs throughout the Pacific Northwest.
These videos, which were either filmed here in the United States or in different countries around the world, were either filmed recently, or up to several decades ago. I’m using Youtube as a way of sharing some of my most interesting moments.
I hope you enjoy viewing, and if you’d like to see more content with what we are doing now with public education, ecosystem preservation, and our educational exhibits at state and county fairs, please visit our website at
