This eagle balances on almost anything - your finger, a pencil, or the edge of your desk. Its center of mass (or center of gravity) is generally beneath the tip of its beak. Students can change the eagle's center of gravity by adding small pieces of tape or paperclips to have it to balance perfectly. Our proud bird can even be used to demonstrate rotational inertia! Just balance it on a pencil above your head, and turn around 360 degrees. The bird will remain in the same orientation due to its fairly large moment of inertia. Each comes individually packaged with a stand. Approx. 16 cm (~6") wing span. Colors may vary.
