Phorusrhacos (misspelled Phororhacos in-game) is a giant flightless bird which is an inhabitant of Shetani Riverside. It has a pale head and yellow beak and blue body. It is a 7-star animal.
The player will see it after receiving an S-ranking (at least 170,000 points) in Shetani Riverside without continuing. It makes a deep bellow noise. It acts like a lion when caught quickly. If the player completes Beginner Mode, a shadow of the bird will appear in the ad for players to try Expert Mode. Phorushacos is essentially the "true final boss" of Jambo! Safari as it's the most difficult to unlock.

- The Phorusrhacos looks more like a Gastornis/Diatryma in-game. The real Phorusrhacos had thinner legs and looked more like a giant Seriema
