ANIMAL FACTS - Ratites
Cassowaries have three toes, but their inside toe is armed with a claw that can be a couple of inches long! Besides the 'claw', these birds have so much power they could kick you into the middle of next week!
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.
