| Titanis Walleri
|Period||Pliocene to Earliest Pleistocene|
|Living Period||4.9 — 1.8 million years ago|
|Size||Height: 2,5 m; Weight: 150 kg|
|First Appearance||Chapter 92|
Titanis is a large extinct flightless carnivorous bird of the family Phorusrhacidae, endemic to North America during the Blancan stage of the Pliocene living 4.9—1.8 Ma, and died out during the Gelasian Age of the earliest Pleistocene, existing approximately 3.1 million years. From circumstantial evidence (i.e., bone fractures), it has been suggested that the species did not become extinct until 15,000 years ago, but more precise dating by McFadden and colleagues refutes such a late date; all known Titanis fossils appear to be at least 2 million years old. Titanis was part of the group of giant flightless birds called the Phorusrhacidae, which are nicknamed "terror birds", and has been thought to represent the youngest species of the lineage. The Phorusrhacidae originated in South America; Titanis is the only known member of the branch of the group that migrated out of that continent during the Great American Interchange. It is estimated that Titanis could run at speeds of 65 km/h.
Shirou's History Fact
They are in the same "terror bird" family as Diatryma, and is the biggest and last. It has a large body, but is a quick runner, chasing after escaping prey. It has claws in on its front limbs used to grab things with them.
