Neat!


"A 90%-complete "terror bird" skeleton found on an Argentinean beach suggests these big-beaked predators had good low-frequency hearing and deep voices.
It is the most complete skeleton ever discovered for one of these menacing beasts, and represents a new species.
Scientists have even been able to reconstruct the shape of its inner ear.
This offers clues about the animal's hearing, which was probably lower than that of modern birds and suggests they used low-pitched calls to communicate.
The find is reported in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology."

Oooo.. Deep voices. I wonder if they could have used a similar tactic as lions do with their roars? That would be cool.

That skeleton is estimated to be 3.5 million years old.  To be that complete is amazing.

Thanks for sharing, this is very cool.  :-)

Oh wow! That's one of my nine year olds favorite animals, I'll have to show him when he wakes up. They featured it on Walking With Monsters I think it was, it's on netflix.

What kind of tactic?
