Answer: Emu

The pop quiz from last week - can you guess what owns this eye? - must now be answered.

I received guesses that maybe the eye belonged to a warthog or to an ostrich. Well, ostrich was close, but Rasmus got it right when he guessed that it belonged to an emu.

This bird, known for its goofy looks, is the largest bird native to Australia (coming in at 120 lbs!). Too bad not much of that weight is represented by its brain. They may have some fun personalities and antics, but you wouldn't find one winning a spelling bee anywhere.
