EMU

Today, it is the only species living of the family Dromaiidae. He is the second largest bird in the world behind ostriches. He reach 2 meters high and weighs between 36 and 40 kg. It is a brown bird with a original plumage who is common on almost all territory australia but avoids areas that are too densely populated,  too moist or too dry. It can travel big distances and can run at 55 km/h. He travel a lot of kilometers to look for varied food (plants, insects). Emu live alone or in pairs, sometimes in groups of 4 to 9 birds.

Too, young emu have a plumage with yellow and brown bands that allow them to better camouflage, an plumage they lose around from 3 months.

After a walk in the street of Melbourne, Floé had a superb idea ! We have gone to the Healesville reserve. It is a outdoor Australian zoological park specializing in animals local. We have seen kangaroos, emus, dingoes, Tasmanian devils, bats ... etc

We had the chance to meet the emu ! It is a beautiful bird, very curious and who has often approached. The scenery of the park was also very beautiful. It have been a very pleasant moment that we fully enjoyed.

Unfortunately, we have gone back to the hotel.emu
