The adult Emu and its eggs are pictured at Oudtshoorn in South Africa. The babies in the last 3 pictures are pictured in an Emu Breeding Farm near Mumbai, India.

Thanks everyone. I will a detail information also. Just to make a point the Emu is considered as a direct descendent of the Dinosaurs. The foot clawas are classically "TRIDENT" like dinosaurs

I know that doesn't look like a "nest" but it is, so please consider adding this spotting to the Animal Architecture mission at http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8082...
