The majestic eagle is a symbol of power, strength, and freedom. These birds of prey are found all over the world and are known for their powerful talons, keen eyesight, and impressive hunting abilities. However, there are some surprising things that eagles cannot do, despite their impressive skills.

Here are some fun facts about eagles that might surprise you:

1. They cannot swim: While eagles are excellent hunters on land and in the air, they are not built for swimming. Their large wings and heavy bodies make it difficult for them to stay afloat in the water.

2. They cannot take off with heavy prey: Despite their powerful wings, eagles struggle to take off with prey that is too heavy for them to carry. They often have to drag their catch to a nearby perch to eat it.

3. They cannot smell very well: Eagles have a poor sense of smell compared to other birds of prey. They rely on their sharp eyesight to spot potential prey from great distances.

4. They cannot live without a mate: Eagles are known for their lifelong pair bonds. If an eagle loses its mate, it may spend years searching for a new partner or remain alone for the rest of its life.
