...that was fairly frightening:
We sometimes go for holidays at this little mud brick cabin place in far western NSW where there are lots of emus.

It was so great, you could walk right up to them - there's something about standing eye-to-eye with a 6ft bird, it's like looking back 20 million years.
thankyou to everyone involved.
Animals are great, huh?
its a member of the giraffe family but it doesn't have a long neck and looks kinda like a zebra.
