Southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius), San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Escondido, CA.
The shark of the Australian rain forest... and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I think cassowaries are super neat and, for some reason, they seem to like me too. Every time I went to see them at the safari park they would come straight over and check me out. One walked right up to the glass, sat down, and just stared at me. My best guess is that, in addition to their natural curiosity, I must resemble one of their keepers. - 0 seconds
