ANIMAL FACTS - Ratites
Cassowary droppings contain hundreds of seeds gathered over hectares of rainforest. These seeds are then dispersed and help to maintain habitat for future cassowary populations and other wildlife that inhabit the rainforest.
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.
