Dromaius novaehollandiae
Like the ostrich, the emu is a large flightless bird. Compared to the size of its body as the second largest living bird, the emu’s wings are tiny. Its three-toed legs, however, are long and strong, and allow the emu to rely on running rather than flying, reaching speeds up to 30 mph.
