 +====== Pelagornis ======

 +  * **Wild** 
 +    The much larger ancestor of water birds like the stork or pelican, Pelagornis miocaenus shares many traits with its modern-day brethren. However, it seems to spend much more time hunting for fish over the open deep-sea. 
 +  * **Domesticated** 
 +    Because of its ability to fly, walk, and surface-swim,​ a tamed Pelagornis is one of the island'​s most versatile mounts, but this comes at a cost. The same webbed feet that allow Pelagornis to serenely maneuver along the ocean'​s surface prevent it from snatching prey from the ground, which may limit its appeal to some survivors. 
 +  * **Known Information** 
 +    In fact, I have rarely spotted a wild Pelagornis anywhere near the coasts of the main Island, as it prefers to rest its wings by paddling along on the ocean'​s surface rather than waddling along the Island'​s beaches. Perhaps this behavior is a result of its survival instincts. The early Miocene was a post-dinosaur epoch, after all, and Pelagornis would not be accustomed to such predators. Considering how quickly it flees from humans, one can hardly blame its caution.
