terror birds

For a long period of time,a group of birds called the phourusrachids,aka the "terror birds", ran around eating any animal smaller than themselves. Although they were birds, they weren't flighty. I mean that literally, beacause they were flightless! They also have a sad story behind their fierce looks.You see, they were once the biggest and most sucsessful predators on the planet! But when large mammalian carnivores appeared, they had a tough time.But although they were replaced, they continued to carry on. It was only when our species appeared, that they died out. I don't know why they died so but I can tell you this: If they still survived today, I wouldn't want to meet one.


  1. You sure know a lot about terror birds. I sure wouldn't want to meet one to. Whae would they look like one I 2011?

  2. I don't know. I sure hope they would be vegetarians!

  3. Hi Ryan!
