The Emu is a large flightless bird that can be up to 3m tall and weigh more than 90kg. They are found in Australia and Tasmania, but emu farms exist all over the world because of their many uses. They can run at up to 70km/h making them difficult prey for humans and other predators.
Emus have a brown coat with dark brown spots or stripes on their body and tail feathers. They also have bright yellow eyes and a muscular neck which they use to fight off predators such as dingoes, wild cats and even human hunters.
Emus are very large birds and can run really fast on their two powerful legs. They do this when they feel threatened or need to escape from predators such as foxes or dingoes. The emu is also one of the few birds that does not lay eggs, instead it lays a single egg inside its body which then hatches into a small baby emu!
