In New Zealand there existed the giant man-eating Haast Eagle

Key facts:

  • 40% bigger than the golden eagle
  • Attacked at speeds of 80kmph
  • Striking force equal to a cinder block falling from an eight-story building.
  • Hunted the Moa; a 9ft ostrich-like bird about the same size as a North American Black Bear
  • The Maori say it hunted people too
