German term or phrase: Hasengeier
I came across "Hasengeier" in a text describing Turkmenistan mythology. I am a native German speaker, and acquainted with this term (an animal I believe to be native only to Europe/Central Asia), but what could the English translation be? Any ideas? How have you all handled non-native animal species names before, that is, if you COULDN'T find a direct translation?
Thanks in advance!
