What's a Moa?

Unique to New Zealand, Moa lived for 60 million years in a lush, peaceful and primeval landscape until the end of the 13th century. Like the Kiwi, Moa couldn't fly - instead, they walked everywhere.

Unfortunately, they were no match for the Maori, the new migrants to New Zealand, who saw them as a tasty, easy-to-catch resource and didn't hesitate to put them on the menu and make cloaks from their feathers. Now extinct, these birds once came in several sizes - from small (1.3m tall) to very big (2m tall and weighing 250kgs).
