Moa

Giant flightless birds hidden deep in the rainforests of Assam, Malaya and the East Indies, moa stand up to 12 feet tall and weigh about 510 lbs (2d4/HD). Unlike other flightless birds, they do not have even vestigial wings, and are a peaceful herbivorous species, but extraordinarily little else is known of them.

Being such large beasts, moa spend most of their day feeding from trees and shrubs. Like other flightless birds, they swallow rocks to assist in grinding their food. They possess very large claws to protect themselves if cornered, but are otherwise relatively defenseless. Moa's eggs are between 5 and 9 inches in length and quite fragile: the birds lay few eggs and take about ten years to mature.

Beyond cursory accounts of native hunters, however, the moa's abilities and behavior are unconfirmed.
