Origin Edit

Phorusrhacos was a large prehistoric predatory bird, up to eight feet tall, that inhabited South America. These birds were nicknamed "Terror Birds" because they were one of the largest predatory birds that ever lived. Phorusrhacos' closest living relatives were serima birds, although "Terror Birds" were much larger, and had hooked beaks as well as clawed wings to help them catch prey. Captin Nemo arrived at the mysterious island, he found that Phorusrhacos was still living on the island, and domesticated and bred the beasts, in attempt to end world hunger. However, once the giant birds became out of control, Nemo attempted to kill the birds, however he wasn't able to kill one of the Phorusrhacos, which was killed later.

DescriptionEdit

8 to 10 feet tall, Phorusrhacos had a curved beak for killing its prey and a giant body, making it one of the largest birds to live. Because of its large size, Nemo decided to domesticate the birds in attempt to end world hunger. The Phorusracos was incredibly well detailed and scientifically accurate, and is very realistic, in both appearance and movement.

BehaviorEdit

The Phororhacos was an aggressive predatory bird, and found humans an easy prey. Although it is unknown whether Nemo domesticated the Phororhacos like other large animals in the film, Nemo clearly stated in the film that the Phororhacos was extremely aggressive and dangerous, and he tried to kill the bird with by shooting it, however, the bird survived. This was probably the Phororhacos's first encounter with humans, and after that it wasn't any longer afraid of them. Like any other flightless birds, Phororhacos had no natural fear of humans, however, unlike the other giant flightless birds that encountered humans (Dodo, Moa), the Phororhacos was a top predatory of its time, and this made it

extremely aggressive towards humans. Because of this, the Phororhacos was hard to kill, and wasn't afraid of humans at all, until they began to stab it to death. Although Phororhacos may have been domesticated, it was a wild predator in its behavior.
