So this came up on my dash yesterday. This little baby is know as Argentavis magnificens (wikipage when you click the picture ). It’s the largest bird to ever take flight.
It’s suppose to have had a weight of 70-78kg and a wingspan of roughly 7m.
This is the size of wings you need to lift a human being off the ground.
I want all people who were whining about species reassignment surgery a little while back to take a good hard look at that. This is the wingsize we’re talking about. This is what you’d carry around. This is why it’s not going to happen, period.
