Cygnus falconeri, also known as the giant swan, is a species of very large swan from the Pleistocene period of Malta and Sicily. It was so large that it would have been taller, but not heavier, then the dwarf elephants that also lived in the region. Due to its large size, it may have been flightless. It went extinct either due to climate change or competition and predation.
