There were various species of Moa, ranging from a mere 4ft tall to
the massive 12ft monsters that were the biggest birds alive.  Despite all
evidence to the contrary they still exist too -- to prove it here's an
ascci representation of a photo I took in Central Otago late 1995...

Also in the pic a lesser spotted giant Kiwi, which must be nearly 2feet
tall itself if the scale of the photo is to be trusted.  Fun fact: from a
purely ornithilogical POV the Kiwi is unique amongst the world's birdlife
in that its nostrils are located at the end of the beak -- thus allowing it
to sniff out the bugs, worms, and half-empty twinkie packets hidden under
the dead leaf litter on the floor of NZ's temperate rainforests.


   So how's yer life 
 and career going then?

        Aw the film career's a bit slow; all the 
        Hobbit parts in LOTR were taken -- but I 
       do have yet another BBC wildlife show with 
         David Attenborough coming up in a few 
                     weeks though.
