Monkey-eating BBC-beating eagle

The Guardian has a great video. It is about how a monkey-eating eagle attacks a BBC filmmaker in Venezuela's jungle.

The eagle is a Harpia harpyja. There are several other eagle species in Venezuela big enough to grab monkeys, but this is the largest. It can have a wingspan of 200 cm and talons 13 cm long. You just don't mess with its nest.
