Description: The Terror Bird is a fearsome predatory land Bird. It's more than a match for a human unless they are well armed; a good rifle will do in most cases. Or, you could try to ride it and stab it in the neck, whatever floats your boat. When this giant variety was last seen, their habitat was restricted to a small island deep in the Pacific.
