Their population was 40-50 million years ago
The giant bird inhabited the Antarctica area
It also had strong teeth with long beaks
They also vanished with dinosaur era
Ranchi: Its wings were vast. The result of ongoing research on ancient remains
has now been found. The wings of this bird of the ancient earth used to be about
six meters or twenty feet. Currently, the spread of the birds of the albatross
species is about eleven and a half feet. Research on the remains of fossils is
believed that birds of this species lived on this earth about 40 to 50 million years
ago. Which become extinct in a period of gradual development . The bird of this
species is scientifically named Pelangornithid. It was a resident of the area of
Antarctica. Two of his fossils met in 1980. Since then research based on these
lower jaw. Only then researchers from the University of California were adding
links to it one by one. In between, this work was stopped due to some reasons.
But five years ago, Peter Klose started working with his team again. When he
started work, he was a student and the museum people there used to call him a
museum mouse who was always hovering there. In this effort, Klaus, along with
Ashley Poust of San Diego, discovered those things that had previously been left
out of the eyes of researchers for some reason. By the way the Chinese Academy
of Beijing was involved in this work. Thomas Stidham also supported him.
Its wings was established through secondary research
The result of this renewed effort was that they were able to find this bird of new
species of ancient times on the basis of this fossils. This bird, which settled in the
area of Antarctica in ancient times, was also huge in size. Another ancient bird of
this size has already been discovered, named Pelanggornis sanderacei. Its wings
also used to span 23-24 feet.
Now after knowing everything, it has been speculated that this bird was also quite
heavy due to its size. Its weight used to be around five hundred kilos. The wings
of the flying petrosorus of the dinosaur species have been reported to be up to 33
feet. The result of this research is also that this species of birds also ended on its
own very soon after the extinction of dinosaurs from the earth.
It also became extinct around dinosaurs era
It may be that this species could not withstand the change in the Earth due to the
meteorite which had killed the dinosaurs in an instant. After renovating his
anatomy, it is found that his skull was about two feet long. But the result of this
research is also that the weather in Antarctica was not as yet. It was a hot area and
surrounded by seas. For this reason, these giant birds also roamed in the sea. So
they had no problem getting food from land or sea. With their wings, they could
fly long distances with great ease. It was also easy for him to catch prey with his
long beak. The shape of his jaw suggests that he had teeth about an inch long that
helped him turn prey into food.
