#8 SkyFunk

SkyFunk is the type to stay in the background and take careful observations. Carrying much more intelligence than the other Terror Birds, she is patient and will strike at the most opportune moment. SkyFunk NEVER fights a losing battle.

#7 TerrorDactyl

The TerrorDactyl has a very muscular build. He’d be just as happy attacking you from the land as the sky. Watch for the fangs as he attempts to tame his insatiable hunger.

#6 Roost-Terror

A normal rooster is terrifying as it is.  Pump some prehistoric-type steroids into it, scramble its brains a bit and start feeding it meat… You’ve got yourself some Roost-Terror!

#5 Steeler

The name Steeler comes from the shiny, silver colored feathers on this birds head. His shrill death scream will freeze you in place while his predatory partners pick you apart.

#4 Sarge

Scientists believe that terror birds were very quick runners, reaching speeds of up to 30 mph!

Sarge is the type of mouthy, military dudes that gets his charges fired up for battle through those dang insults about yo’ mama. He does back up his words by fighting mightily, if not aimlessly, in the trenches.

#3 Meat Rage

Terror Birds are the only known large predator species to migrate from South America to the southern United States.

Meat Rage would be the closest of the “Terror Birds” I draw in this collection that actually resembles a real terror bird. As the name suggests, this gal is a thoughtless, vicious, carnivorous eating machine. Think Looney Tunes’ Tazmanian Devil as a dino-bird.


#2 Ol’ One-Eye

| November 2, 2011 | 0 Comments

Phorusrhacids is the scientific name for Terror Birds. They were the top predators in South America 62 million years ago. They were flightless, and 3 to 10 feet tall.

This guy would be probably considered a Pterodactyl, but I’ll be taking a few creative liberties, looking mostly at “bird-like” prehistoric monsters. Ol’ One-Eye is one of those proud war vets: he’s battled hard, suffered loss, been there, done that. He is a bit older, so his ideas don’t always get the respect they should (because he’s grumpy), although he is right most of the time.


#1Terry Toof

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

My wife has been looking at what I’ve been drawing and believes that I’m addicted to Angry Birds. In fact, I am addicted to something far worse: Terror Birds. I didn’t know which direction I wanted to go with the villain in my story. While I was teaching a reading class, I came across Terror Birds in a book about Prehistoric Animals. It clicked! I was gonna do a twist on Jurrasic Park!

This first character is one of those goofy, wise-mouthed sidekick birds you see in Disney movies like Alladin and Lion King. “Terry” is an ironic reference to Terror, since he’d talk you to death before scaring you into a heart attack. “Toof” gives a nod to his lisp that’s a result of having one tooth.
