As part of her home-schooling, I'm making the kid do a research project on biospheres. (Science in my Fiction
, among other sites, was extremely useful
for this project
!) We linked it with her creative writing project, which was to create five possible alien life-forms, and to describe, as if she were a xenobiologist, their habitats, ways of making a living, childcare arrangements, governing rituals, etc.
Anyway, one of her invented lifeforms, the kerata, had evolved from birds, and, alors! looked sort of like these giant terror birds I found at i09
She was very pleased.
Although, sadly, it doesn't look like these prehistoric terror birds were intelligent.
