Malagasy crowned eagle

The Malagasy crowned or Malagasy crowned hawk-eagle is an extinct subspecies of crowned eagle native to Madagascar and was declared extinct in the 1500's and mainly fed on lemurs. It was perhaps the apex predator of Madagascar along with Cryptoprocta Spelea and the 2 species of crocodile. It likely became extinct due to human hunting of its prey.
