What Animal Am I?

Itโ€™s what animal am I Wednesday and this weekโ€™s guest is a very special part of our Natural History Museum collection. Letโ€™s see what she has to say:

โ€œHi 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 โ€“ thatโ€™s because I donโ€™t have a bone in my chest for flying muscles to hang on to, so I canโ€™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. Iโ€™m also covered in something else that is glossy and black in colour.

Can you guess what I am?โ€
