This is New Zealand's version of a sort of giant Ostrich, now extinct. Bones were sent to Richard Owen in London - Owen was also a surgeon, enlightenment figure, and crazy looking guy.

The discovery of the bones in New Zealand was made by traders about 50 years before the photo.

Owen received scorn for his hypothesis it was a giant bird at the time, although he turned out to be correct.
