    Don't get me wrong they are lovely animals. There is a place we go about 15 minutes from here where you can take a lunch and sit in this large grassed area, you can buy little food pellets ($.50 a bag) to feed the dozens of roos around.

    They just laze around, waiting for people to feed them, soaking up the sunshine.

    Their fur is so amazingly soft, and they kind of feel like a horse when you feed them, fuzzy snouts and what not. What's fun is pouring water in your hand and letting them lick it... good fun.

    But like many things when they are provoked or scared... well ya know.

    No, THIS, is an Emu... they make the most disturbing burping/gurgling sound you have ever heard. It sounds like they are about to open up a can of whoop-a** on you... I hate them.

    Cassowaries are about the same size, but apparantly more ferocious than an Emu. Come in contact with an Emu and most times they run away (unless there are babies about), but Cassowaries will start trouble from what I have been told.

    My wife has a couple good stories of Cassowaries up north, chasing and ripping people up.

    Although Aussieland does have a couple, the Roo (as mentioned) and the CASSOWARY , about 5-6 feet tall and claws like razors. It gets ugly quick when these get angry.

    My wife works with someone, who "some years" ago was riding in a car with her husband.

    They hit a kangaroo.

    The thing actually came through the windshield, and when it got it's senses back, attempted to get out of the car. In doing so it actually killed her husband with it's hind legs and very nasty claws.

    What they tell you here at various parks etc, is if a Roo has the inclanation to do damage to you, it will "kick box" (as we have all seen thousands of times in real life and via cartoons) but not with the purpose of "punching you" but instead trying to rip open your body with it's hind claws...

    They are normally very docile and shy, but in the same breath, not to be messed with.

    Imagine one of these bad boys... (meaning the demon roo)

    Kangaroos and wombats make a mess of your car/truck if you hit them, that's why bull-bars are so dang popular in Oz!
