Phorusrhacos attack | Cesta do pravěku
May 9, 2018
Nearing the end of the Tertiary expanse our protagonist comes face-to-face with a gigantic predatory bird. Footage is from Karel Zeman’s ‘Cesta do pravěku’ (1955), also known as ‘Journey to the Beginning of Time’. Zeman took much inspiration from the amazing artwork by his fellow countryman Zdeněk Burian, it’s perhaps more apparent here than in any other scene: paleoworld.ucoz.ru/_ph/3/11233… Apologies for the strange subtitle placement, I don’t know why it’s like that or how to correct it.
I love terror birds.
Quite a few gauchos will tell you that they’re still around!
