Aepyornis



Aepyornis maximus

Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Aves
  Superorder Paleognathae
  Order Struthioniformes
  Family Aepyornithidae
Aepyornis is one of two genera of extinct large flightless birds (ratites) that were native to Madagascar, and became extinct by the 17th century. It is not clear if they became extinct because of human hunting, human egg collecting, climate change, diseases brought to the island by introduced species such as chickens and guineafowl, or because of some combination of these reasons.

The largest Aepyornis were very large, about 10 feet (3 meters) tall and weighing as much as ½ ton. Likewise, its eggs are also very large, over 1 foot (30 centimeters) long, and over 3 feet (1 meter) in circumference.
