Identifying the Vegetarian Vulture from a regular, run of the mill, corpse-hunting vulture is a simple task of being able to identify its colour. While regular vultures have long black feathers, the plumes decorating the body of a vegetarian vulture are tinted with a rather heavy, moss-green lustre. In flight, these birds of prey are often mistaken as winged cauliflowers, though that is an understandable error to commit as most Heroes have poor eyesight.
Those Heroes, who are unfamiliar with what these vultures looks like, need only stare at the closest reflective surface for a close visual reference for the unique Vegetarian Vulture.
As the name implies, the vegetarian vulture prefers to consume plants, shrubs, trees and other forms of plant wildlife that are in a state of faltering death. This is not to be confused with the state of most plants in the autumn, where even the naturally healthy hardy plants would have their own delicate leaves dry and wither. The vegetarian vulture, through some undocumented capability, is actually able to determine which plants are actually lacking in nutrition such as water or other important elements. They are also known to go for plants that are suffering from severe cases of plant rot and water-dehydration.
For the most part, vegan vultures are not known to attack animals -even those near the state of death. However, the average questing hero, as powerful a warrior as one may be, are also known to be terrible lazy ones with a habit of slacking off and undergoing what would be best described as a vegetative state of un-productiveness, thereby making such beings seen as a viable prey for the vegetarian vulture, targeted by the flock.
Vegetarian vultures are known to be incredibly aggressive. Many kingdoms and realms have reported attacks on corn fields, desert cacti, tropical bananas, coconuts, daisies, poppy fields and various other botanical organics. Putting up scarecrows won't work either; sources confirm that vegetarian vultures are unable to distinguish real plants from humans wearing silly plant costumes and would gobble them up all the same (and the source happens to be an enterprising market vendor who felt that dressing up as a vegetable would help increase revenue).
Should one ever encounter a wild and aggressive vegan vulture, it is recommended that the intended victim start dancing and engage in any rigorous physical activities that would convince the being that the person is not really a vegetable. It has been recently reported that due to the fact that the average hero smells like grass and moss, avoiding a confrontation with the vulture is considered to be impossible.
Heroes who are fortunate enough to defeat a vegetarian vulture might consider poaching the creature's beaks as they make for excellent and stylish book ends.
