Terror Bird

And your little dog too....
I did not prepare one as they existed on South American savannas 2.5 - 65 million years ago. Some species grew up to 3 meters tall with skulls the size of horses' heads. They could swallow your dog whole, run as fast as your Mini, and kick like Bruce Lee. A sculpture of this lurks in the dark corners of the Field's Bird Division, waiting for poor, unsuspecting pugs. I swear I've seen it move out of the corner of my eye. Pug was not injured in the making of this painting - promise.
