If you thought all emus could or can do is RUN, then you are in for a surprise. This Male Emu, makes the nest, waits for the 'girls' to deliver their eggs, after an introduction of course. Then they leave him to it! Emund, that's what I call him, checks the goods and the sits on them. He sits there for 55 days without food or drink! THEN he stays with the offspring for a total of eighteen months! Hows that for dedicated parenthood? I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did creating it.
