Emu - The Australian Museum

The emu is the second-largest living bird by height, after its ratite relative,
the
ostrich. It is endemic to Australia where it is the largest native bird and
the only
extant member of the genus Dromaius. The emu’s range covers
most of mainland Australia, but the
Tasmanian, Kangaroo Island and King
Island
subspecies became extinct after the European settlement of Australia
in 1788. The bird is sufficiently common for it to be rated as a
least-concern
species
 by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Officials warn of emu on the loose in North Carolina for 3 weeks ...
