The Abyssinian ground hornbill is one of the two largest species of hornbill, the other being the southern ground hornbill. It reportedly averages around 90 to 100 cm (35 to 39 in) tall, around 110 cm (43 in) and weighs approximately 4 kg (8.8 lb). Per Stevenson and Fanshawe, the Abyssinian is a larger species on average than the southern ground hornbill, at 102 cm (40 in), but published weights and standard measurements contrarily indicate the Southern species is indeed slightly larger.Like its cousin, the Abyssinian ground hornbill has long bare legs for walking. The male has a red throat pouch and the female has a blue throat pouch. Modified feathers form long eyelashes, which protect their eyes from dust.
Totally didn’t realize it til now, but there are Monster Hunter themed plates for the “New” 3DS. A very interesting Yian Kut-Ku, and a cute Poogie.
So far I’ve only seen mention of these plates being for the “New” 3DS and not the XL version.
Arzuros Armor from Monster Hunter
Photo set from me and Aurena’s Monster Hunter cosplays. We did this shoot during Animecon 2014, The Hague - The Netherlands.
These were our costumes that won us a trip to Paris for the ECG finals at Japan Expo. It was an amazing experience and I’m still very proud of my partner. Without her, we wouldn’t have been there <3
Be sure to check out my partner here:
