The moa were eleven species of flightless birds endemic to New Zealand ranging in size from about the height of a chicken, to the largest species which was twelve feet tall. Most, if not all, species of moa died out due to over-hunting by the Māori and habitat decline before European discovery and settlement. Could a surviving population of gigantic birds be hiding in New Zealand? Moa sightings have occurred fairly regularly in the remotest parts of New Zealand from a variety of sources.
