Paleontology: The Eagle Rules Australia – The Science Spectrum

The area around Lake Pinpa in southern Australia is now a very dry desert. But this was completely different 25 million years ago: at that time, dense forest prevailed here, where a large eagle stood at the top of the food chain and hunted marsupials in the forest.

The group presents the discovery in “Historical Biology”.
