    Just wait until it rains and then get ’em to look up. That works, right?

    Yes the are called “Terror Birds” and would be vicious every bit as much as Utahraptors.

    Abstract: It is a summer day on the pampas of central Argentina some five million years ago. Soon the head drops to the level of the grass, and the creature moves forward a few meters, then raises its head again to re new the surveillance. In preparation, it lowers its head to a large rock close to its feet, rubbing
    its deep beak there to sharpen the bladelike edges. In rocks from 55 million to 45 million years old in North America, Europe and Asia, large carnivorous birds are represented by the family Diatrymatidae—
    which, according to my colleague Herculano M. F. Alvarenga of the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, developed characteristics similar to those of the phorusrhacolds. After the emergence of the Panamanian
    land bridge, placental dogs and cats of the families Canidae and Felidae dispersed into South Americafrom North America.

    Very dangerous. Among the first ones to rise just 5 million years after the K-T extinction was the 7 foot tall.

    Their known fossils range from 62 million to two million years in age. Within this family is the oldest known phorusrhacoid, Paleopsilopterus, which was found in Brazil. Members of these last two families
    were lightly built, swift runners.They were the members that became the dominant running carnivores of their time, and they held that status for millions of years.

    Imagine riding one instead of a horse.
