            This truly made me laugh out loud.
            I remember when a blog was an individual boot.

                An eagle could carry off a small turkey.

                  Reminds me of : Fly Like an Eagle by the Steve Miller band...
                  Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
                  Into the future
                  Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
                  Into the future
                  I wanna fly like an eagle
                  To the sea
                  Fly like an eagle
                  Let my spirit carry me
                  I want to fly like an eagle
                  etc etc.

                  Time does keep slippin' into the future.

                    Apparently there used to be massive Haast eagles in New Zealand which preyed on the Moa, the emu equivalent. It could, and did, attack humans.

                      There did. However I would regard it as a more interesting lesson in evolution. The Haast Eagles depending on which lineage you take, flew around fairly unhindered for hundreds of thousands to a million years before the humans arrived very recently, the maori, and wiped them out very quickly. It's just forgotten that New Zealand was the last habitable place on earth to be visited by humans.

                        Quite. Once the Maori had arrived, within what we call the Christian Era, they settled down to exterminate the moa, as it was an excellent protein source. Up to then, of course, it's only predator had been the Haast eagle, and it was only vulnerable when out in the open. Once the Maori had eaten the moa, there was nothing for the eagle to eat!
                        Apart from humans and they could, and did both fight back and take precautions.

                        As you rightly say, New Zealand was the last reasonably large habitable land mass which humans reached. The Maori did some ecological damage...... see above...... but the British, the main 'colonisers' did more.

                            And stoats, pigs, mice and rats. Not sure who introduced possums, but the NZeders say that if you see a dead possum on the road, and there are skid marks near it, it was hit by a tourist!

                              Does that mean the locals would pick it up and eat it. possum supposed to be tasty.

                              Is it true what they say about Dixie?
                              Does the sun really shine all the time?
                              Do the sweet magnolias blossom at ev'rybody's door?
                              Do folks keep eating possum
                              Till they can't eat no more?
                              Is it true what they say about Swanee?
                              Is a dream by that stream so sublime?
                              Do they laugh, do they love, like they say in ev'ry song?
                              If it's true, that's where I belong
