An emu relaxes in his habitat at the Auckland Zoo on the North Island of New Zealand.

Australia is where the Emu originates from and is the second largest bird in the world after the ostrich. The Auckland Zoo in New Zealand is home to this large Emu where he roams throughout the lush green grass of his habitat.

The Emu grows to be about 2 meters tall, can weigh up to 45 kilograms and a single stride can cover 3 meters taking the Emu to speeds of up to 50 kilometers an hour. They live in the woodlands such as scrub areas and desert in Australia where they feed on grasses, leaves, flowers and insects. Their favorite food is a delicious caterpillar and the Emu will travel hundreds of kilometers to find enough food for themselves.

The Emu has no problem being active in the middle of a hot day due to its feathery protection. ... continue below the picture...
