Fuzzy Baby Emus Don't Know How Their Legs Work Yet
Everyone loves watching baby animals do adorable things — but here's one baby animal you may not have seen, and if you haven't, you're TOTALLY missing out. These are baby emus.
Not only are they super cute, but these two are learning to walk, and they're having some ... trouble. Adorable trouble.
The emu is the second largest bird on the planet, standing nearly 6 tall, and weighing up to 120 pounds. Emus cannot fly but they are fast runners - up to 30 mph. Surprisingly, they are also strong swimmers. Some scientists consider emus to be living dinosaurs because their bones and joints are similar to dinosaurs'.
Their ability to store fat allows them to go without food for long periods of time. Emus can defend themselves with tremendously powerful forward kicks. They eat great quantities of caterpillars, grasshoppers, and masses of the burrs that tangle sheep wool, which makes them helpful to farmers.
