I think every Kiwi knows there used to be giant birds called Moa in New Zealand. They went extinct about 500 years ago. What I didn’t know was that females were generally considerably larger than males:

females were sometimes nearly 7 times heavier than males. Females of the largest species weighed as much as 240 Kg while their mates were a mere 34 to 85 Kg.

And science, really? ‘Reverse sexual dimorphism’ when females are bigger? That language needs to change.
