New Zealand, also known by its Maori name, Aotearoa, which literally translates to ‘The Land of the Long White Cloud’, became a separate land mass in its own right approximately 80 million years ago. After the dinosaurs perished 15 million years later, apart from a few species of bats, no indigenous mammals existed. Species of birdlife were, however, abundant, one of the most notable being the Giant Moa; weighing up to 250kg, it was the largest bird to ever live. Whilst birds were unmolested by predators in the form of mammals, many of their own kind were vicious attackers. Despite its bulk, the Giant Moa was hunted by Haast’s Eagle which was, in turn, the largest bird of prey ever known to exist. It had enormous talons beneath its 13kg body and a wing span of three metres. The eagle’s huge talons are said to have been able to penetrate deep into the flesh of its prey and even penetrate bone.
1. What type of mammal remained after the disappearance of dinosaurs?
2. What did Haast’s eagle use to hunt larger prey?
