Anomalopteryx

Anomalopteryx

Anomalopteryx didiformis is an extinct bird genus known colloquially as the Lesser or Bush Moa. It stood more than 1.3 metres (4 ft) tall and weighed 30 kg. It inhabited much of the North Island and small sections of the South Island of New Zealand. The most complete remains, a partially articulated skeleton with substantial mummified tissue were discovered in 1980 in Echo Valley. It is now in the Southland Museum, in Invercargill, New Zealand.
