Prehistoric people are suspected of destroying the largest birds that ever lived


Who killed the biggest birds in the world?


According to scientists, this is evidence that the elephants-birds of Madagascar were hunted and eaten.
The remains are dated about 10,000 years ago.
Until now, it was believed that the first settlers arrived on the island about 2500-4000 years ago.
"This pushes back the date of arrival of the person, at least 6,000 years ago," says Dr. James Hansford, a scientist from the Zoological Society of London, UK.
In addition to questions about human history, the discovery suggests a "radically different theory of extinction", necessary to understand the loss of the unique fauna of the island. Instead of destroying animals in a short time, people seem to have lived next to the birds for thousands of years before they died out about 1000 years ago.
"People seem to have co-existed with elephant birds and other extinct species over 9,000 years, apparently with limited negative impacts on biodiversity for most of this period that offer new findings," says Dr. Hansford.

Bird-elephants that lived in Madagascar.
They weighed at least half a ton, at a height of about 3 meters and carried giant eggs that were larger than those of dinosaurs.
Elephant birds, Aepyornis and Mullerornis, lived among other remarkable species on the island, including giant lemurs, which also died out.
There are a number of theories about why and when it happened, and how many people were involved.
The birds had massive legs, claws and a long, powerful neck.
The study also refutes our understanding of the first arrival of people on a tropical island.
"We do not know the origin of these people and will not know until we find further archaeological evidence," says Professor Patricia Wright of the University of Stony Brook, co-founder of the study.
"The question remains, who were these people, and when and why did they disappear?"
The results of the study are published in the journal Science Advances.
