Fossils of largest parrot ever recorded found in New Zealand

A parrot fossil estimated to weigh about 7kg was discovered in New Zealand. It is one of the largest parrot ever recorded and is more than twice as heavy as the kākāpo, previously the largest known parrot. Palaeontologists have named the new species Heracles inexpectatus to reflect its unusual size and strength and the unexpected nature of the discovery.

If you dig deeper, maybe you'll excavate remains of a pirate on whose shoulder it used to sit.
