The Phenomenal Museum boasted this was a preserved foot of an animal circa two thousand years ago that stood about fifty feet tall and had scales rather than fur or feathers. On a much smaller scale, it’s nearest relative today would probably be a chicken.
The scene was replicated from drawings and writings found, the buildings under its talon believed to be a nesting site erected by natives in the hope of an easy food source, as each egg would feed a family of 12.
What they didn’t take into account was the creature’s amazing sense of smell, which more than compensated for its poor eyesight.
The tables were turned, and the natives became food for the hatchlings.
My three taggees who can have a bit of fun with this are:
