Productive Bird

The mug of the emu never fails to please. Those big eyes, that big beak - the tiny brain. Always a winner. The female emu (a hen, of course) can lay eggs for 25 - 35 years, beginning at as early as 18 months! Each season they can produce as many as 50 eggs. An emu reaches full height, nearly six feet tall, in its first year. That is a tall, long-lived, very productive, very ugly bird.

Thanks for the photo, Ioan.

Ya, I've had bosses that looked like this, too.

I've done a post on the uakari:

But I plan on doing one again. They are ugly indeed.

Looks like it should be hanging around a large purple crystal, plotting to capture Gelflings...
