What Animal Am I?

It’s what animal am I Wednesday and this week’s guest is a very special part of our Natural History Museum collection. Let’s see what she has to say:

“Hi Everyone! Thanks for having me on today.

My home is in northern Queensland, Australia.

I also have relatives over the sea in New Guinea.

My family are called ratites – that’s because I don’t have a bone in my chest for flying muscles to hang on to, so I can’t fly.

I am about 1.5m meters tall and have a bony helmet on my head that helps me crash through thick rainforest.

You can see I have bright blue and red skin on my neck. I’m also covered in something else that is glossy and black in colour.

Can you guess what I am?”
