Two animals that are unfortunately gone since a time back; the elephant bird and the moa. The moa (in the first three pictures) lived in New Zealand until the 16th-century. The elephant bird (in the last drawing by Walton Ford) was running around on the island of Madagascar in the 17th century. None of the birds could fly, and both laid eggs larger than rugby balls. (The first image is a montage, made by someone I don't know. It's easy to imagine that this is what it could have looked like, a not so very long time ago.)

Om dessa fåglar och många andra, skriver jag och ritar i boken Hårdkokta fakta om ägg.
