P9240191.tif

Maggie with baby emu (chick). Emus are almost identical to an African ostrich, but are native to Australia. The adults are huge and copious in the outback. Can actually kill you with their 3 toed feet, if cornered....... They run like the wind and actually throw stones / rock back at you if you chase them with a car, motorcycle or on horseback! They flick the stones backward as they are running........
