Introducing Cygnus falconeri, the giant swan of Malta and Sicily!  It's size is described to be 3 times as large as the modern day mute swan.  Compared to bones of living swans, it's estimated to have weighed 16 kg and a wingspan of 3 meters.  In the same region of Cygnus falconeri was the Dwarf elephant, the swan was taller, but the dwarf elephant weighed more.  Since it was so big, it's thought that it was flightless.  It went extinct when human activity began to grow, it's either thought it went extinct due to climate fluctuations or the arrival of superior predators or competition.
