This emu looked me straight in the eye. Did you know that the emu is the second-largest living bird by height, second only to the ostrich? It can weigh up to 80 lbs. A very big bird? ... Well sort of... emus are not true birds. They are from the ratite family which have flat breastbones without a keel and therefore are not able to fly. They are related to ostriches and kiwi who can not fly either. Always learning something new! .

It is speculated that the Southern Cassowaries casque aids in the sound effect of the "boom". #ratite

My sweet girl saying hello to her daddy. You can see her plumage is already starting to change 🐣

Almost 80 degrees today! Phoenix and Stella love getting sprayed by the hose to cool down 🕶🌞 #hotout #bigbirds #emusofinsta #spring #sillybirds #ilovemybirds #ratite #happypets #pond

The Australian Emu. The world's second tallest flightless bird grows up to 1.9m and can run up to 50km/h. While not carnivorous it has a massive beak and big kick in it. According to wikipedia "breeding takes place in May and June, and fighting among females for a mate is common." There were no fights when I approached for this photo. Although my height was on point for these ladies, my looks were not 😭 #emusdontrateme #emu #birdlife #birds #ratite #vanlife #mandmvanlife #victoria #wilsonpromontory #theprom

A group of emus that curiously came up to our car while we were travelling between survey sites in Grenfell, NSW. This was my first time seeing emus in the wild and it brought me back to being in Tanzania where you would spot large animals in the distance from the vehicle.

Doing a happy run/dance because my humans got me a box of goldfish (that’s my favorite snack), and it’s Saturday! Find the happiness in the little things in life 🤘🏻☀️

Working with African species is always interesting; Large biodiversity and Pristine habitats make Africa a heaven for wildlife veterinarians and conservationists.
In the other hand working with ratites specially Struthioniformes are more chalenging and cool.
Ratite is used to refer to flightless birds that do not have a keel but have, rather, a flat "raft-like" breast
This Ostrich (Struthio camelus) reffred to our hospital with 2 major injuries on his neck and leg. Because it was reffered in golden time we sutured the injuries.

کار کردن با گونه های افریقایی همیشه جزء کار های لذت بخش برای من بوده؛ تنوع گونه ای بی نظیر و البته زیستگاه های بکر و دست نخورده، افریقا رو به بهشتی برای دامپزشکان حیات وحش و کانزرویشنیست ها تبدیل کرده.
از طرفی کار کردن با رتیت ها مخوصا استروتیونیفورم ها چالش برانگیز تر و باحال تره.
رتیت ها به اون دسته از پرنده هایی اطلاق میشه که علاوه بر اینکه توانایی پرواز ندارند، کیل هم ندارن و به جاش یه سینه پهن دارن.
این شترمرغ (Struthio camelus) با دو زخم بزرگ در گردن و پا به بیمارستان ارجاع داده شد. با توجه به اینکه صاحب این پرنده اون رو در زمان طلایی به ما رسونده بود ما تونستیم بعد از تازه کردن زخم ها اونارو بخیه کنیم.

The weather is too hot for these small creatures. Trying to sneak under shadows and thirsty too.
Do provide water in a vessel in the shadows.
Even doing something small does make a big difference.

I love when mom comes home for lunch and gives me love ♥️ @intobirds @emusofinsta

This is the first time I’ve seen one of the emus in the pond like this! #emuspaday #emu #emusofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #ratite #australia #texas #cedarcreek

Beautiful morning for a swim- Paco was cleared by the vet Wednesday afternoon to reintegrate with Kevin after nursing a recurrent eyelid injury for the past two months. He had 4 set of stitches and very limited time with the others. Thursday morning he was released from “confinement” and his very first priority was running directly to the pond for a swim 🏊‍♂️ ❤️. #emus #emu #emusofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #bigbird #babyemu #ratites #ratite #petsofinstagram #animals #animalsofinstagram #australiananimals #emusswimming #swimmingemus #wateremus #pondlife

Wow - L👀k at the size difference between Paco & Kevin. Paco - Is my short, sweet and sensitive emu 😁❤️. #emus #emu #emusofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #bigbird #babyemu #ratites #ratite #petsofinstagram #animals #animalsofinstagram #australiananimals
