Emus

Emus for kidsEmus are strange looking birds! They are native to Australia, and are the biggest bird in Australia and the second biggest in the world (the biggest being the ostrich).

Emus have long thin necks and legs and can't fly - but they can run fast! They reach up to 2 metres in height - that's 6 foot 6 inches tall! They can go for a very long period of time without eating, if necessary.

Fun fact: Emus can kick - hard! It is their main defence mechanism.
