A 1912 photograph of a male Madagascar giant dylanus trying to protect himself against poachers.

A Madagascar giant dylanus is one of the largest dylanus species and the largest bipedal animal on the planet of Earth since the extinct giant theropod dinosaurs, between 14-16 feet tall and weighing about 2,000-2,500 pounds, although it is dwarfed by the extinct Indian giant dylanus, which stood more than 19 feet tall and weighed more than 5 tons. They are native in Madagascar. It is also one of the most aggressive large animals on the planet, being more dangerous and more aggressive than hippopotamuses, having the ability to problem-solve (open doors, etc.), pick up and throw boulders about 350 pounds [if provoked], pick up and throw people [if provoked], and attack by crush with fists and by biting [if provoked], but this behavior is only found in males that has a high amount of testosterone, ready to attract a female and mate. Male Madagascar giant dylanuses might be aggressive, but the Madagascar giant dylanus species are not aggressive to all animals, they are peaceful to all other dylanus species (even domestic dylanuses), reason, they're closely related and they smell like Madagascar giant dylanuses themselves, because of this, the Madagascar giant dylanus only recognizes other dylanus species as their own species and accepts them as part of their family. Remember, all dylanus species smell similar, this is why Madagascar giant dylanuses (both males and females) are gentle to other dylanus species while the male Madagascar giant dylanuses (with high amount of testosterone or is protective) are aggressive to other animals they consider the threat to their family. Madagascar giant dylanus are the most herbivorous of all dylanus, being known to feed on fruit on many kinds of Indigenous trees of its native reign (it is 100% herbivorous). It lives in woodlands and grasslands of Madagascar. Its scientific name is Dylanus Gigantecus. They are an endangered species, with about 4,910 Madagascar giant dylanuses left in Madagascar, due to humans overhunting them for their meat and nails (which is made into medicine, which people thought could cure diseases, but it isn't true), but is a protected species because of this, so hunting them is illegal.

The Madagascan government is trying to modify a new virus that would make female Madagascar giant dylanuses much more aggressive if provoked, but only to those who provoked females (like only poachers) in order to protect the Madagascar giant dylanus' population from going extinct.
