Vultures Tend To Eat Their Meals Butt-First, And Here's Why

Apparently, the scavenging birds go after the softer parts of the body first.

Vultures are pretty gross animals, scavenging and feeding on carcasses and rotten meat. But it's even worse than you may be aware.

It turns out that vultures prefer to eat a certain part of the carcass first: the rear end. Just check out a new video (above) released by National Geographic on YouTube last week for all of the nauseating details.

Viewers be warned: The video is graphic (so if you're eating right now, maybe wait to watch when food is not around).
