    Jurong bird Park is a wonderland !

    Mysore Zoo has always had a pair of Cassowaries , kept in open enclosure along with Emus. Once, I overheard a person "educating" his kid that the dull coloured Emu was the female and the colourful Cassowary , the Male ! Obviously, he thought they were the same species !

    I wish I had been to this bird park the two times I was in Singapore…don't think that I'll ever get back, now that I'm retired and living on a fixed income. I'm so glad I got to see this through your eyes and wonderful photos!!

    Casque – that's a new vocab I learned today, and some fact about Cassowary. I just met the world's most dangerous bird? Thanks for the info. It's a beautiful creature.

    When we were in Australia we saw a Cassowary crossing the road. Fortunately we were safe in the car. This is indeed a dangerous bird. It can tear your body open with its claws. You have taken some very great photos to allow us to have a good look at the helm. Thank you!

  45. OMG … I have never seen a bird like this ..Interesting info ..

  46. Vyjay says:

    The bird does look menacing and eerie. Would definitely not want to encounter one in the open.

    I visited Jurong Bird Park last year. It was really a worthwhile experience to have a close up encounter with the colorful birds. On the other hand, I just like admiring them but not really touching them. I have been always afraid of their beaks. I was even scared to the lories even they are small. What more of a cassowary. Haha! I think no one can be attacked by a Cassowary in Jurong Bird Park. The birds there seems to be harmless. ๐Ÿ™‚
