Caption

Aepyornis maximus. Illustration and photo-reconstruction of the Madagascar flightless elephant bird Aepyornis maximus. Elephant birds are members of the extinct family Aepyornithidae. Elephant birds were large to enormous flightless birds that once lived on the island of Madagascar. They became extinct, probably in the middle of the 17th century, for reasons that are unclear, although human activity is the suspected cause.
