This particular species of bird grows to a colossal size. The large powerful beak has rows of curved, barbed teeth and a long wormlike, segmented tongue. It has multiple sets of pale yellow eyes and an excellent sense of smell. The plumage is inky black and grows in long rather tatty locks which form large ruffle around the neck.

It is a highly intelligent bird with a particularly curious nature. Fond of hot air balloons and classical music.
