Sarcoramphus Skull Replica or King Vulture measures 4.4×2.5×2.5 inches. King Vulture Skull Replica is museum quality polyurethane cast made in USA. 2-part skull (separate cranium and jaw).

The Sarcoramphus or the King vulture inhabits an estimated 5,400,000 sq miles between southern Mexico and northern Argentina.

In South America, it does not live west of the Andes, except in western Ecuador, north-western Colombia and far north-western Venezuela.

It primarily inhabits undisturbed tropical lowland forests as well as savannas and grasslands with these forests nearby. It is often seen near swamps or marshy places in the forests.

Sarcoramphus or the King vulture is often the most numerous or only vulture present in primary lowland forests in its range, but in the Amazon rainforest, it is typically outnumbered by the greater yellow-headed vulture, the lesser yellow-headed, turkey, and American black vulture in more open habitats.

Sarcoramphus or the King vultures generally do not live above 5,000 ft., although are found in places at 8,000 ft. altitude east of the Andes, and have been rarely recorded up to 11,000 ft. They inhabit the emergent forest level, or above the canopy.

The King vulture soars for hours effortlessly, only flapping its wings infrequently. While in flight, its wings are held flat with slightly raised tips, and from a distance the vulture can appear to be headless while in flight. Its wing beats are deep and strong.

Birds have been observed engaging in tandem flight on two occasions in Venezuela by naturalist Marsha Schlee, who has proposed it could be a part of courtship behavior.

Despite its size and gaudy coloration, this vulture is quite inconspicuous when it is perched in trees. While perched, it holds its head lowered and thrust forward.

Sarcoramphus or the King Vulture is non-migratory and, unlike the turkey, lesser yellow-headed and American black vulture, it generally lives alone or in small family groups.

Groups of up to 12 birds have been observed bathing and drinking in a pool above a waterfall in Belize.

One or two birds generally descend to feed on a carcass, although occasionally up to ten or so may gather if there is a significant amount of food.
