- This article is about the charmable animal. For the collector during Farewell to Gaile, see Black Moa (collector).
The Black Moa is a fearsome subspecies of Moa Bird and its only carnivore. It appears in the Echovald Forest, assaulting many of the locals and evading hunters such as Zho and Nehdukah. It is feared, respected, and legendary among the Kurzicks, who once thought it merely a mythical beast. The tales of vicious Black Moa attacks are told to scare Canthan children to make sure they behave.
