Meet the world’s most dangerous bird; the Cassowary!

This bird lives in the rain forests of Australia and New Guinea and is actually pretty shy if undisturbed, but if you get to close and it thinks you’re a threat you could receive a bone-breaking kick or get sliced by its dagger-like sharp claws. The Cassowaries are very unpredictable, aggressive creatures, especially if wounded or cornered. During WWII, soldiers stationed in New Guinea were warned to stay away from these birds, but some of them still became victims.

It is important to note that the Cassowary is on the endangered species list.
