    "Cassawory"?
    Dictionary-time for Corinna here...
    I would have thought baby Emu or so...
    The photo is really lovely, that look is ever so special, so curious, yet cheeky --- yes "muppet" is a good word for this one :D.

    Edit:
    No such word in my dictionary :grumpy: --- hmph...

    Sorry my spellling is atroci... er very bad, it was cassawary, the males are black and have a great big lump of bone on their head, but i am not sure they have it before they are sexually mature, and it looked a bit to black to be an emu and hairy for an ostritch, but i cant say i really know what i am getting my self into here :), damn cute whatever it is, and nice to see that captured... i didnt think any of the others in the ostritch family were black all the way up like that when young.

    Fantastic birds, even though they are so dangerous they have such an inquisative behaviour that makes them very endering when tame, if a little scary when they take everything out of your purse or pockets to show their mates :).
