Excellent shot of this relatively rare bird. I actually saw one in the wild when I was in Australia (it ran across the road in front of our minibus). Our guide also told us stories that concur what the previous poster said about their ferocity.

Interesting story about this bird. One would not immediately consider such a pretty and colorful bird as being so dangerous. However, looks can be deceiving. You captured this bird well with rich details and beautiful color.

The 2004 edition of the Guinness World Records lists the cassowary as the world's most dangerous bird. Normally cassowaries are very shy but when disturbed can lash out dangerously with their powerful legs. During World War II American and Australian troops stationed in New Guinea were warned to steer clear of the birds. They are capable of inflicting fatal injuries to an adult human. Usually, attacks are the result of provocation. Wounded or cornered birds are particularly dangerous. Cassowaries, deftly using their surroundings to conceal their movements, have been known to out-flank organized groups of human predators. Cassowaries are considered to be one of the most dangerous animals to keep in zoos, based on the frequency and severity of injuries incurred by zookeepers.
