ANIMAL FACTS - Ratites
Emus have three toes, the underside of these toes is flattened with a small pad, to aid traction over rough terrain.
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.
