So, what did we learn out of this experience. When my husband came home, the girls were able to tell him that an emu is a ratite relative of the ostrich. The girls learned that ostriches can run about 60.6 mph, while an EMU can run up to 30 mph. There have only been 2 reported cases of EMU attacks on humans. We also learned that ostriches feathers are used for "feather dusters." LOL!
