This remarkable new series goes back in Australia’s history to discover the larger-than life animals that once roamed. The Genyornis is a giant extinct bird that was part of a range of megafaunal creatures, which inhabited Australia during the Pleistocene period. This incredible flightless bird was heavily built, standing more than two meters tall, with massive hind legs, tiny wings and hoof-like toes. Fossils of Genyornis have been found in association with human artifacts, including cave paintings and carved footprints, suggesting human co-existence. Sometimes such fossils have been found in groups, suggesting that, like emus, the species may have lived in mobs.
