Emu

There are some ten species of ostrich-like birds in the world today. Four of these are represented in our zoo, but for the time being at least, the emu is the only one privileged to have an enclosure of its own. The emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae) can be found in a number of different habitats in Australia, ranging from woodlands to grassy plains. This species is omnivorous, and feeds on seeds, fruit, grasses, and insects. The female is typically polyandrous, that is, she mates with a number of males. However, she will then lay her eggs in the nest of one chosen male. The male is the one that incubates the eggs, and later cares for the chicks that hatch.
