Feeding Emus

Not Phil or my favourite animals, those beady eyes look evil.
Alexander really wanted to feed them....after holding out food for one, he was not too keen again...they are really large sharp beaks!
The only problem was the other emus saw, and all decided they wanted some too. That was when I put the camera away, and we made a dash to the gate! We were not hanging around to be in between a group of emus....ewspecially since this one became very possessive of us and was making very frightening noises and being aggressive to the other emus..

Alexander soon changed his mind about feeding the emus!

The Melbourne Zoo used to have an 'open' are with kangaroos and emus. When I was younger I remember Mum going into the enclosure and an emu being very curious about a sparkly brooch that Mum was wearing. Mum has never been close to one again as it wouldn't leave her alone.
