Once Upon a Time in Crete by HodariNundu Once Upon a Time in Crete by HodariNundu
Ya, aqui esta otra vez :B Lo quité para hacerle unos pequeños cambios.
Aquila chrysaetos simurgh (un águila real gigante que vivio en Creta hasta el Holoceno) intenta atacar a una cria de Mammuthus creticus (supuestamente el mamut mas pequeño conocido), pero un adulto se interpone justo a tiempo. :>

Here, I took it down for a little makeover.
Aquila chrysaetos simurgh (a giant golden eagle that lived in Crete during the Pleistocene and early Holocene) attacks a Mammuthus creticus (smallest mammoth known) calf, but a protective adult stands in the way just in time. :>

Reminds me of the legend of the Roc from the story of Sinbad the Sailor.

Early Holocene huh? Imagine an early human sees that thing in the THUNDER STORM and then calls it the Thunder-Bird.... maybe that's where the whole thunder bird legend came from? lol i'm just speakin' my mind here :U

Doubt it, as the thunderbird comes from North America and this particular eagle lived in Crete only... but thunderbirds may be inspired by teratorns or Amplibuteo all the same :B

Ironically (or not) the term Thunderbird was given to the Phorusrachids of South America by David MacDonald (probably due to Brontornis). It didn't exactly catch on. That being said, Amplibuteo seems the most likely candidate as the source of the Tjhunder Bird legend due to geography and description.

When mythical creatures turn out to be real. Sort of.

I find it quite interesting that there were various different types of dwarf elephant on various different islands throughout the world. ^^
