This remarkable series goes back in Australia’s history to discover the larger-than-life animals that once roamed our land, with the third release depicting the Genyornis.

This incredible flightless bird was heavily built, standing more than two metres tall, with massive hind legs, tiny wings and hoof-like toes.

Fossils of Genyornis have been found in association with human artefacts, 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.
