One of Australia’s coat of arms animals, the emu is wide spread across Australia with about 725,000 individuals in the wild. They live to be about 10 years old and can run up to 50kph. They feed predominantly on fruits, seeds, flowers, insects and small animals and are a critical seed dispersal animal in the Australian bush. When breeding, the female lays her eggs and then leaves the male to hatch and raise the chicks, which he does for 2 years.
