Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Cassowary, AKA Satan’s Pet. I don’t know if that’s an actual nickname to give to the birds, but dammit, I’m nicknaming it.
The Cassowary is a large flightless bird that can stand at around 5.9 feet (males) or 6.6 feet (females). Their diet mainly consists of fruit, though the species is omnivorous and will eat anything up to and including small vertebrates.
While Cassowaries are very shy, they’re extremely dangerous when provoked, slashing at small animals and even people with their claws, the middle of which can eviscerate the abdomens of average men.
I think they also breath fire, but that might be a myth. Might be.
So enjoy the nightmares folks, and have a good day.
