Researchers have recently discovered the fossils of one of the largest birds that have ever lived on this earth, in the calculation of the weighed in at nearly 1,000 pounds and standing more than 10 meters in height. The fossils of the flightless bird, part of the types of Pachystruthio dmanisensis, has recently been found in a Building through the hole, and it was the first time that a bird of this size has been discovered in the Northern Hemisphere.

“When I came in for the first time, I felt the weight of the bird from which the thigh-bone I was holding in my hand, and I thought it must be the Malagasy elephant bird fossil, because there are no birds of this size have ever been reported from all over Europe,” the study’s lead author, Dr. Nikita Zelenkov, it said in a statement.

For the study abstract noted at the kind of bird it was, “a great bishop” which may have played a role in helping the most animals.

It is likely that the bird lived alongside the early humans in Europe around 1.8 million years ago, “well, this giant bird was probably a typical feature of the eastern European flora in the time of the early hominin arrival,” the abstract added.

The sheer weight of the bird, it would be “almost twice that of the largest moa, the largest bird, the common ostrich, and nearly as much as an adult polar bear,” Zelenkov said.

Zelenkov and his co-researchers believe that it is possible that the bird was hunted by early humans, which can be used for their meat, bones, feathers, and eggs.

It is unclear as to whether the bird was related to an ostrich, or others, Zelenkov said the team doesn’t have enough data yet to make a decision. However, the site at which it is found, it can be the key to unlocking Europe ‘ s ancient secret.

“In the Taurida cave was only discovered this past summer, when a new highway was being built,” he said. Last year, mammoth remains have been excavated, and there may be a lot more to the site, you will learn about Europe’s past.”

The study is published June 26 in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
