The giant man-eating "Haast's Eagle" of New Zealand really did exist according to new research, it would have weighed up to 40lbs and is thought to have hunted flightless birds such as moa and even human children.
A massive man-eating bird of prey from ancient Maori legend really did exist, according to new research. Scientists have known about the existence of Haast's eagle for over a century based on excavated bones, but the behaviour of these giant birds was not clear.
