Eagles are another very popular choice, with several countries choosing eagles or varieties of them as their national animal. These include Egypt and Mauritius (Golden Eagle), Nigeria and Ghana (Eagle) and the South Sudan and Zambia (African Fish Eagle). Eagles are known for their speed and (in most cases) size, as well as their position as apex predators in the bird world, this makes them an apt national symbol. The females of all species of eagles are larger than their male counterparts. They are the national symbol for many nations including the United States, Germany, Albania, Spain and many more.
