Animal of the day – 02/22/2013 – The Emu

Emu1

The animal of the day is the Emu. (Did you know: This 2nd largest bird in the world is able to go for weeks without food! Native to Australia, it’s been known to eat stones, pieces of metal and glass shards, which it uses to help digestion! I guess  after weeks without food, you’d eat anything!

They’re known for being curious birds, and have been known to follow humans around! Guess that’s how someone got that close-up shot!
