Cassowary Ornament


Someone call Sam Neill because I think we just found a dinosaur! Or at least a long lost cousin of one... 

Cassowaries are fruit loving bird giants and ratites, a group of ancient flightless birds appearing on the planet 60 million years ago alongside dinosaurs. Shy and elusive, they pepper rainforests with fruit seeds pollinating their habitats and creating the dense foliage they blend so easily into.

They are true powerhouses, enormous birds with the ability to run fast and jump high, a marvel of our planet and a unique Australian icon of the tropics.
