Caption: Gaston's bird. Computer illustration of a Gastornis sp. prehistoric bird running in an ancient landscape. Gastornis was a large flightless bird that lived between the late Paleocene (55 million years ago) and the middle Eocene (45 million years ago). Also known as diatrymas, it grew up to 2 metres tall and possessed a huge sharp beak and large powerful legs with sharp talons. This suggests it was a predator and probably hunted using ambush methods or pack hunting.
