Argentavis was a large, prehistoric bird that lived in South America during the late Miocene period, around 6 to 8 million years ago. It was a member of the Phorusrhacidae, a group of flightless birds commonly known as terror birds.
- Argentavis was one of the largest birds that ever lived, with a wingspan estimated to have been up to 26 feet and a weight of over 220 pounds.
- Its large size and flightlessness suggest that it was a formidable predator, capable of pursuing and capturing large prey on the ground.
- Fossils of Argentavis have been found in several locations across South America, providing important evidence for the distribution and evolution of these massive birds.
- Its large beak, equipped with sharp, hooked teeth, suggest that it was a skilled hunter and scavenger, capable of feeding on a variety of prey.
- Argentavis lived at a time when South America was isolated from other continents, and its fossils provide important evidence for the unique evolution of large, flightless birds on this continent.

Due to the inherit nature of 3D printing the miniatures might contain imperfections and could require additional cleanup where the support have been; use sand paper or green putty for example. Print layers will sometimes be visable.
3D resin is brittle, even if we use a mixture than makes it more flexible. However it cannot be compared with the normal plastic that is used for example Warhammer, Marx or Conte miniatures. Handle the 3D prints with care, a fall can break them. Glue info here.
