See my "Max Size w/Feathers " post from the good ol' archives at :
In that post, I state that Gregory S. Paul's _Predatory Dinosaurs of the
World_ gives a figure of 420 kg for _Aepyornis maximus_, the extinct
elephant bird of Madagascar. I now see that David Lambert's _Guide to
Prehistoric Life_ gives a weight of 440 kg (970 lbs. for the metrically
impaired) for this animal.
