Emu Illustration

The Emu is the second largest bird in the world. Only their cousin the Ostrich is larger. They are native to Australia and they can run up to 30 miles per hour. They eat various plants and bugs. Female emus fight for a mate and they lay multiple clutches of eggs every year. The male incubates the eggs and he loses weight as he hardly eats or drinks. They have three toes on each foot like  quail and other running birds – though the ostrich has only two. They play a big role in native Australian mythology.
