But I’m sure when he’s all grown up, the ladies will find him dashing!

      Ah – there you have it! He has all this white fluffy hair cos he is still young. He’ll go more bald when he is an adult at about 4 years. Not that I think that would necessarily be an improvement! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yes, he feeds mainly on carrion and scraps (I did put a link in, but maybe it is not obvious?) But he performs a necessary task in the ecosystem by removing rotting carcasses. ๐Ÿ™‚
      So not too pretty, but hey, it’s all good in Nature ๐Ÿ™‚
