Reasons to Love Emus

There are several pictures of me with Emus, but none of them are digital yet. Resons to love Emus:
  • Fast runner, can reach speeds of up to 40 mph for short bursts.
  • Running bird can make a stride of nine feet.
  • Expert swimmer.
  • Bill is broad and soft, adapted for browsing and grazing.
  • When food is abundant, large stores of fat are developed.
  • They move great distances for food except when males are sitting on eggs.
