Cassowary

This bird is one of the types of birds that are flightless. Even though this bird might seem non-harmful because it can not fly and try to peak you while flying, this bird is one of the most DANGEROUS birds in Australia, and that is saying quite a lot. This bird is very, very, VERY, protective of it's own territory and will murder anything perceived as a threat which can count you as well. This bird has razor-like claws and these birds can be as tall as 7 feet tall.
