Alien Vulture are native inhabitants on an unnamed planet. They seem to be scavengers, and carrion eaters.
They can be classified to be more reptile than bird though, since they don't have teeth-less peak, and have no feathers. Their wings are leathery, and have a flat ended tail for better maneuvering.
Following Riddick's arrival and betrayal on the planet, a vulture found his hand sticking out of the rubble and began to eat it, but Riddick strangled it to death before it could do so.
