South Island Giant Moa (Dinornis robustus) Right Leg, Castle Hill Station, Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand

This extinct, flightless bird lived in New Zealand. The largest of the species reached 3.6 meters and its only predator was the Hst eagle, until the first Polynesian settlers arrived in the 1200s. Moas were soon driven to extinction through hunting and loss of habitat. This bone was excavated from Pleistocene deposits by Cornishman, John D. Enys, whilst he was living in New Zealand. He sent many of these bones back to Cornwall and the museum have several in their collection
