You are in my power!

This is one of our emus deciding whether or not to grab for the photographer's shiny watch. Emus like shiny things -- at least our emus do.


Five emus live at Rikki's Refuge. Three were found wandering as "strays" by animal control officers. (We know this statement puzzles you. It puzzles us too.)


Two were hatched as babies as an insane school project. Once born, the little birds were no longer useful and nobody knew what to do with the two little beings. Emu babies are small, but they grow fast.


Want to visit them? Bring shiny things. And stay away from their legs!;
