Cassowaries & Emus
The bird family Casuariidae has four surviving members: three species of cassowary, and the emu. The emus were formerly classified in their own family, Dromaiidae, but are now regarded as sufficiently closely related to the cassowaries to be part of the same family. All four members of the family are large flightless birds native to Australia and New Guinea.
