Default World Cassowary Day

Actually it was yesterday where I am, 26th September.

Southern Cassowary - Casuarius casuarius johnsonii
Threatened species.

These live a little north of where I am and they do a great job but you don't want to come face to face with one with no-where to run.
.
. They can be as tall as 1.8m (nearly 6 feet tall). Incredible looking creatures. Flightless.

They're a keystone species so despite their small population these days they actually have a huge impact on their environment as they are seed spreaders especially in the rainforests.

Pictures and some info from my State Govt. and Australia Zoo .

Be Casso - wary
