CASSOWARY’S BAL­ANCED DIET

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Di­wan field guide Mike D’arcy took this pic­ture of two cassowary chicks fight­ing over some road­kill. But aren’t they just plant eaters? “They eat in­sects, live birds and any­thing small enough to fit into their mouth,” says Mike. “Three years ago, I photo’ed a dad killing and of­fer­ing an emer­ald dove to his chicks. So, maybe these cas­sowaries are also Goan­ni­vores.”
