Well designed for hunting, eagles have curved, razor-sharp talons for catching their prey. The name raptor comes from the Latin "rapere," meaning to grip or grasp. Rough bumps on the eagle's toes help it hold slippery fish. To catch fish, eagles watch the water surface from a perch or while soaring in the air. Then they swoop down close to the water and drop their feet in to catch the fish.
