Prehistoric bird species discovered in far north australia!

New Bird species discovered in Far North Queensland.

A bird species previously unknown to Europeans has been discovered and photographed after a probing exhibition into a vast unexplored rainforest in Far North Queensland.

 

Adi Fink, an ornithologist with the University of Sydney specialising in Australian birds, told the SMH that the birds have been rumoured to exist due to Aboriginal oral histories from the area.

 

These accounts were largely dispelled as myth until last week when a team penetrated deep into the uncharted area, the Illuni ranges, an area of rainforest roughly the size of Wales. A solitary animal was photographed, but the team of scientists was forced away by the bird. Daniel Dickinson, the leader of the expedition said that "the bird behaved very aggressively and seemed to be in a highly protective mode."

 

Dickinson also confirmed that the species is flightless and is most probably frugivorous; mainly feeding on fallen fruit and fruit on low branches. He added that "the prehistoric pterodactyl-like appearance of the bird indicates that the species may have walked with the dinosaurs."

 

The species has not yet been scientifically named.

You must be getting it confused with the Canadian wood duck, it has similar pterodactyl wings

I was looking for a happy cheerful ending to this thread like "yay, we found a new species. Too bad species are dieing off 1000 times faster than natural selection!" Instead i found this:

Shocking, then all of a sudden kind of differently shocking at the very end; like why does that matter, seriously? Niggas need to handle their dead monkeys differently.
