Ooops I just saw this. I understand that your OP was more of a metaphor, a good one too, but just in case, vultures care not one iota about the dna
of a corpse. I can tell you what kind of carrion they prefer, which is fresh carcass (riga is a problem for their beaks believe it or not), and
mammals. They have no problems dining on other birds, but if there is a dead coon next to a dead bird, the vulture will eat the coon. Reptiles are
