ANIMAL FACTS - Ratites
It is hard to tell the male cassowary from the female. Males have a slightly drooping tail, while mature females are usually larger.
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.
