Emus are huge, flightless birds endemic to Australia.
They’re also featured on the country’s coat of arms, together with the kangaroo, with both creatures selected because they are physically incapable of taking a step backward, meaning they can only advance.
Emus are one of Australia’s myriad glorious birds and trail only the ostrich as the world’s largest birds. They’re also capable of running up to 50 km/h!
The link with dinosaurs also becomes pretty obvious just by looking at these creatures.
Emus are also known to have controlled the late British comedian Rod Hull.
