Unique to Australia the emu is Australias largest and tallest bird standing at least 1.5 meters or more in height. A flightless bird with a whole lot of character. The emu can weigh up to 40kg or even a little more. So if he decides to push you around a little there’s not much you can do. Emus sometimes frighten people due to their sheer size and inquisitive nature. Getting right up in your face. And if he sees something he doesn’t like in you, he will pick on you, steal your hat or chase you. But he is a friendly animal especially if he is familiar with you.
