18 Nov What Animal Am I?
It’s What Animal am I Wednesday!
“Why hello there! Thanks for having me today for ‘What Animal am I Wednesday?’
Can you guess who I am? I’m a ratite, meaning I am part of a group of flightless birds that are generally very large, although I’m not very large at all! My closest relative is the elephant bird from Madagascar, and I’m also related to my friend across the ditch, the Cassowary. There are four other species of my kind and we are all found in one country not far from Australia. You might have even seen me as my country’s national icon! Because I can’t fly away from my predators, my species are declining at a rate of around 20 per week – more must be done to save me! Can you guess who I am?”
