Speechless Sunday - Cassowary at the Houston Zoo!!

Cassowary at the Houston Zoo

The Cassowary is a very large flightless bird; native to New Guinea. Cassowaries are very shy, but when disturbed, they are capable of inflicting serious injuries to dogs and children.  The 2007 edition of the Guiness World Record list them as the most dangerous bird in the world. In other words give them a wide berth. Our daughter took the picture on a recent trip to the Houston Zoo.  I'm not sure how she got the picture without the fence in front but I guarantee you there was a fence.

Houston has a wonderful zoo.  It makes a great day trip if you have never visited it!
