The Scavenger Ravens are giant birds native to Skull Island which appeared briefly in the 1933 film, King Kong and later in the 2005 novel Kong Reborn by Russell Blackford.

Name

The Scavenger Ravens' name comes from their being a giant bird closely resembling a crow or raven, and that it feeds on carrion.

Design

Scavenger Ravens greatly resemble large black birds like crows or ravens, but are larger than even an ostrich.[1] They have clawed feet, though prefer to use their beaks to tear flesh off of their prey.

History

King Kong (1933)

As Jack Driscoll approached the freshly killed carcass of the Meat-Eater, a Scavenger Raven could be seen pecking at it before flying away startled.

Kong Reborn

Deep in the jungle in the year 2009, two Scavenger Ravens picked at the carcass of a gargantuan crocodile-like creature when an exploration team of humans came into the clearing. The Ravens eyed them, but made no move and did not see them as a threat, despite the immense number of guns pointed at them. Even when Kong, a four ton gorilla, ran past, the ravens made no move and continued their meal.

Later, a Raven flew over the wall to see the human base camp on the beach. Its presence frightened the mercenaries who were commandeering the scientific camp, and in a show of power, the briefly fearful leader ordered them to shoot the observing bird. It died painfully in a volley of M-16 rifle fire. It did not fear the humans, and was simply observing. A group of four ravens later fed on the corpses of two enormous Sauropods, along with the giant insects.
