The emu is a flightless bird of the group of ratites. It is the second largest bird after the African Ostrich and lives exclusively in Australia.
In the case of Emus, the rooster exclusively breeds, the female rarely stays with the family and defends the area. Mostly it moves on and leaves the cock to the rearing. It may happen that nests contain eggs from several females.
With enough water and food, Emus are loyal to the location, but also can hike hundreds of kilometers in search of food. They live mostly in loose groups, which can consist of up to 1,000 animals. Long walks make Emus in an even, effortless rut. In dangerous situations, however, they can also reach over 50 kilometers per hour and maintain this speed persistently over longer distances.
Where the term “emu” comes from is not known. Most likely it is a derivative of an Arabic word that means “big bird”.
The emu also plays a major role in the mythology of the aborigines of Australia. For the Aborigines the emu is referred to as “mother of earth”.
