Nuralagus rex
The Minorca Giant Rabbit (Nuralagus rex) holds the record as the largest lagomorph ever discovered and was also the only one to become the largest mammalian herbivore of its environment. It lived on the European island of Minorca during the Pliocene. This rabbit differed from its modern relatives in its smaller head and ears, digitigrade stance, and shortened hindlimbs with reduced cursorial adaptations.

My blog post on the Minorca's giant rabbit is doing unexpectedly well. It has 700 views after being up for only 14 hours! I will be posting a slightly more refined reconstruction to DA sometime this week. In the mean time, why not have a read?

Pachyornis elephantopus
The Heavy-footed Moa (Pachyornis elephantopus) was the largest member of the genus Pachyornis and the third largest species of moa overall. This exceptionally heavily-built species lived in South Island during the Pleistocene and Holocene. Soft tissue specimens of this species have been discovered showing that it had white-tipped feathers, giving its plumage a mottled appearance.

Megalapteryx didinus
The Upland Moa (Megalapteryx didinus) was a small, abundant species of moa which lived in the mountainous areas of South Island. It is particularly well-represented by soft tissue remains including entire desiccated body parts with intact skin and feathers.

What do you think of Gargano Island?

Seems like it had an interesting fauna, I'll have to do a blog post about it one day. I'm especially interested in reconstructing Hoplitomeryx.

Honestly, I think that Garganornis is the probably most interesting species of the Island.

I shall call it "Father Goose"! It would be interesting to do a side-by-side of it with the South Island Goose (Cnemiornis calcitrans). There's also the giant  hedgehog Deinogalerix from Gargano.

Nuralagus. Tapirus polkensis and possibly T. veroensis.
