ANIMAL FACTS - Ratites
Emus are nomadic, or migratory, and seek the growth of lush vegetation after the rain. They can travel hundreds of kilometres in any one season.
The Ratite family includes flightless birds with a flat, keelless breastbone (the keel is where the flight muscles connect). Most of their muscle is in their legs and thighs. There are only five species around the world. Cassowary, Emu, Ostrich, Rhea and Kiwi.
