Brontornis burmeisteri

Brontornis (B. burmeisteri "Thunderbird") giant flightless herbivorous bird from South America that was the largest species of its group with a height of around 2.80 meters and an estimated weight of 350-400 kg that lived in the Time of Lower/Middle Miocene of the Neogene.
A new phylogenetic study of the species Brontornis burmeisteri places it as a member of the Anseriformes group and not a terror bird, as had been proposed to date, so it would be closely related to the extinct Gastornis, a genus of birds from the Eocene.
The pose represents a specimen of Brontornis burmeisteri searching.
