I love this Emu portrait photograph that I took a couple years ago at the local game farm. (zoo) It's a lovely snapshot of a single bird, with tufts on it's head, beady eyes and a dangerous looking beak.
Much smaller than an ostrich, but intimidating all the same. It makes a sound like a beating drum and can probably inflict all sorts of damage and peck out a person's eyes out with that pointed beak or give them dozens of scratches with the razor sharp talongs on its legs if it felt threatened.
It's a whole lotta chicken type meat if you ask me. I've never had emu but there must be a reason why they are farmed and I bet it ain't for their feathers!
